Check digit calculation explained

## UCC-12 (UPC-A)

To calculate the check digit of an UCC-12 (UPC-A) with number 0 12345 12345 follow the following five steps.

Step one: From the right to the left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.

 Index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 Digit 0 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 Position odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd

Step two: add all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3: (0+2+4+1+3+5)*3=45

Step three: add all digits in even position: (1+3+5+2+4)=15

Step four: add the results of step three and four: 45+15=60

Step five: substract the sum from the next highest multiple of ten, the result is the check digit. (If the result is 10 then the check digit is 0): 70-60=10, so the check digit is 0.

## UCC-13 (EAN-13)

To calculate the check digit of an UCC-13 (EAN-13) with number 87 12345 12345 follow the following five steps.

Step one: from the right to left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.

 Index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Digit 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 Position even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd

Step two: add all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3: (7+2+4+1+3+5)*3=66

Step three: add all digits in even position. (8+1+3+5+2+4)=23

Step four: add the results of step three and four: 66+23=89

Step five: substract the sum from the next highest multiple of ten, the result is the check digit. (If the result is 10 then the check digit is 0): 90-89=, so the check digit is 1.

## EAN/UCC-14 (EAN-14)

To calculate the check digit of an EAN/UCC-14 (EAN-14) with number 1 87 12345 12345 follow the following five steps.

Step one: from the right to left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.

 Index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 Digit 1 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 Position odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd

Step two: add all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3: (1+7+2+4+1+3+5)*3=69

Step three: add all digits in even position: (8+1+3+5+2+4)=23

Step four: add the results of step three and four: 69+23=92

Step five: substract the sum from the next highest multiple of ten, the result is the check digit. (If the result is 10 then the check digit is 0): 100-92=8, so the check digit is 8.

## SSCC

To calculate the check digit of an SSCC with number 12 345678901234567 follow the following five steps.

Step one: from the right to left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.

 Index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 Digit 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Position odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd

Step two: add all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3: (1+3+5+7+9+1+3+5+7)*3=123

Step three: add all digits in even position: (2+4+6+8+0+2+4+6)=32

Step four: add the results of step three and four: 123+32=155

Step five: substract the sum from the next highest multiple of ten, the result is the check digit. (If the result is 10 then the check digit is 0): 160-155=5, so the check digit is 5.

## EAN/UCC-8 (EAN-8)

To calculate the check digit of an EAN/UCC-8 with number 87 12345 follow the following five steps.

Step one: From the right to left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.

 Index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Digit 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 Position odd even odd even odd even odd

Step two: add all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3: (8+1+3+5)*3=51

Step three: add all digits in even position: (7+2+4)=13

Step four: add the results of step three and four: 51+13=64

Step five: substract the sum from the next highest multiple of ten, the result is the check digit. (If the result is 10 then the check digit is 0): 70-64=6, so the check digit is 6.

## ISBN and ISSN

To calculate the check digit of an ISBN or ISSN with number 0-123-45678 follow the following five steps.

Step one: arrange the 9-digit ISBN number in a table. Starting from the left, fill in the weight row with number from 10 to 2.

 index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 digit 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 weight 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2

Step two: multiply each digit with its weight and sum the results of multiplication: 0*10+1*9+2*8+3*7+4*6+5*5+6*4+7*3+8*2=156

Step three: divide the sum by modulus 11 and get the remainder: 156:11=14.2, remainder is 2

Step four: the check digit is the number that adds the remainder to 11. (If the result is 10, then check digit is the character X) 2+9= 11 The check digit is 9.

Step five: generate the complete ISBN with hyphens: 0-123-45678-9.

## ISBN-13

The method to calculate the checkdigit of an ISBN-13 is identical to the method for an EAN/UCC-13 (EAN-13). To calculate the check digit of an ISBN-13 with number 978-0-123-45678 follow the following five steps.

Step one: from the right to left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.

 Index 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Digit 9 7 8 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Position even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd even odd

Step two: add all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3: (7+0+2+4+6+8)*3=81

Step three: add all digits in even position. (9+8+1+3+5+7)=33

Step four: add the results of step three and four: 81+33=114

Step five: substract the sum from the next highest multiple of ten, the result is the check digit. (If the result is 10 then the check digit is 0): 120-114=6, so the check digit is 6.
