IRAQI ASSOCIATION FOR BARCODE

IRAQ ASSOCIATION FOR BARCODE (IAB) is a non-governmental non-profit organization that has the independent legal personality recognized as being competent to perform legal acts and direct official communications with all departments and institutions of the country.

It was established 2017 based on Constitution and the Non-Governmental Organizations Law No. (12) of 2010, and Article (47, 48) of the Iraqi Civil Low No. (40) of 1951; Hence it was granted Certificate of Incorporation No. (ID1701020), Ref. (3055) dated 30 -1-2017.

Thus it became the only organization on the national level specialized in applying the barcode system and the party concerned with submitting membership file to the International Standards Organization “GS1” – headquarters in Brussels-Belgium – to acquire national barcode number for Iraq products.

Thereby, as a local member of GS1, it can provide barcode services to all economic sectors (retail and  producers and others in addition to Iraqi state institutions and ministries). Consequently it would be able to contribute in enhancing and empowering local Iraqi products by opening the gates wide for accessing international markets, which in turn will raise Iraqi product reputation, increase production capacity, lift export and improve economy as a whole.

Objectives & Goals

  • Endeavor efficiently to obtain a barcode international number for Iraq from the Global Standards Institute GS1; Thereby enabling corporations/private sector domestic institutions to access  international markets and enhance local product name.

  • Exert all possible efforts to promote and develop offer & demand markets for the domestic industrial, commercial and service sectors in order to keep pace with the international trade markets requisites throughout the world as achieved by applying products’ and services’ barcode specific international specs and standards. Consequently upgrading various production, storage, distribution and sale operations so as to contribute in activating the domestic economy, consumer protection and increase of imports.

  • Work on enhancing and developing the (GS1) system locally and marketing it, and spread goods, services and addresses by adopting the standards approved and created according to work requirements.

Our Logo

We were keen to select logo component that are most expressive of our vision and objectives.

At the heart of our logo lies the barcode symbols, embodying the core of our interest. As our main aim is to distinguish our national products with a unique barcode prefix number by seeking GS1 membership. This step would open the gates for the local products to access national markets, gaining more reliability and spread among other products. This would eventually contribute in promoting national economy.

The wheel of progress forms the frame of our logo embracing our work. As all our efforts focus on jump-starting the economy by introducing our national products into international markets and entering electronic markets with products bearing barcode labels signifying its origin, specifications and other details (making them more reliable and in reach for all customers).

The logo also indicates that we – Iraqi Association for Barcode – are a non-governmental non-profit organization that has the independent legal personality since our establishment on 2017.
