Do It Best SCC (Standard Carton Code) Guides
SCC (Standard Carton Code) is representative in Interleaved 2 of 5 symbology. Each SCC code represents an item and its respective package size. They are found on master cartons, inner packs, pallets, etc. SCC codes are 14 digits in length and are grouped in 1, 2, 5, 5, and 1 digit increments. See example above.
In the example above the leading PI of 1 is used to identify the next level of packaging above the consumer or selling unit. The 0 in the second position represents global compatibility. The next 11 digits are not unlike the UPC in that they are representative of the consumer unit. The PI of 1 does not itself define the quantity, instead, these are considered non-significant numbers used to access a computer database which in turn defines the product and the package quantity.
Do It Best systems also recognize the follow formats:
- UPC-E (8 digit compressed UPC)
- EAN-8 (European UPC based on UPC-E standard)
- EAN-13 (European UPC based on UPC-A standard)
All vendor shipments are monitored for compliance. Vendors who wish to have their deductions reviewed are required to do so within 30 days from the date of the initial e-mail communication. No reviews of said fees will be reviewed after the 30 day allowable period of time.
