This is a Python package, especially for Django that is in early “alpha.” The goal of this project is to make verifying and decoding a GTIN (Global Trade Information Number) as simple as possible. It will provide a custom field type: GTINField() and will be able to answer questions such as:
- Is this a valid GTIN?
- What kind of GTIN is it? There are several standards for identifying trade products including DUN, ITF, EAN, UCC, CIP, and UPC. This will classify based on length and configuration of the digits.
- What is the producer’s country of origin?
- What manufacturer does it belong to?
