European Article Numbering system. The international standard bar code for retail food packages. The EAN-13 bar code type has 12 data characters, one more data character than the UPC-A code. An EAN-13 symbol contains the same number of bars as the UPC-A but encodes a 13th digit into a parity pattern of the left-hand six digits. This 13th digit, in combination with the 12th digit, represents a country code. The JAN-13 (Japanese Article Numbering system) is a special application of EAN-13.
EAN-8 is a subset of EAN-13 and a superset of UPC.

EAN-13 barcode (originally European Article Number) is a barcoding standard which is a superset of the original 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC) system developed in the United States.
EPC (Electronic Product Code) is a unique code that can be used in the supply chain to identify a specific single items. EPC stored in radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. Once the EPC has been captured from the tags, it Will be able to link with the dynamic data (such as food items the original source or their production date, etc.)
The EZPL (EZ Programming Language) is a high-level programming language developed by Godex for their barcode printers.
Features of EZPL are as follows:
1. The data are stored to be processed and will not be printed out until the last printing instruction is received.
2. All the printing contents can be rotated.
3. Images can be downloaded and stored.
