Not necessarily. You can purchase a “Global Trade Item Number” (GTIN) that is a unique UCC Company Prefix from GS1 US that exclusively controls the assignment of numbers. This may be a better option if you are planning to sell your products to a distributor or a retailer and it may even be required from them. Check with the purchaser to confirm.
