Universal Product Code / International Article Number

The Universal Product Code (UPC aka EAN.UCC-12) is the original 12-digit barcode widely used in USA and Canada for items in stores since 1974. The International Article Number (EAN-13) was developed as a superset of UPC with an additional 13th digit for international use (UPC has the prefix 0 in the EAN system).
UPC consists of an item group digit, a 5-digit manufacturer code, a 5-digit product reference number assigned by the manufacturer and a check digit. EAN is build up using 2-3 digits for country prefix, 4-5 digits manufacturer code, 5-digit product reference number and a check digit.
For a list of EAN country codes see Wikipedia, but note that they're not valid for 12-digit UPC codes.
