A barcode is your product’s true identity in the retail world. It can also be your product’s best defense against global piracy, theft, counterfeiting, and fraud.

Product Counterfeiting is the largest criminal enterprise in the world
Sales of counterfeit and pirated goods totals $1.7 trillion per year, which is more than drugs and human trafficking. It is expected to grow to $2.8 trillion and cost 5.4 million jobs by 2022
No product is safe
Growing over 10,000% in the last two decades, counterfeit products exist in virtually every industry sector, including food, beverages, apparel, accessories, footwear, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, electronics, auto parts, toys, and currency.


“After a truck carrying a pallet of my custom iPhone cases was stolen, I was notified via the ProductShield app that a vendor on the other side of the country was illegally selling them.  I was able to verify this and have it stopped. It made me feel very thankful that The Barcode Registry was looking out for me.”


“I have been a member of The Barcode Registry for several years and have a ProductShield badge on all of my products. It truly gives me peace of mind knowing that the business I have worked so hard to build  has that extra layer of protection."  


“I have always had my product manufactured in China without thinking about it being counterfeited over seas.  Thanks to The Barcode Registry and ProductShield, I was able to discover what was going on.  I have since had that Chinese manufacturer flagged and now have my product Made in the USA.  Joining The Barcode Registry is one of the best decisions I have made for my business!”
