There is a standard ISO/IEC 15417:2007 that specifies the requirements for the bar code symbology known as Code 128. Does anyone use it? Are there any other standards covering the barcode symbols (linear and/or 2d/3d)? if yes, which standard?
I believe we need to use a reference for the barcode standard if it is not already covered in any way by the QMS (?) or 60601-1 the general electrical safety standard. We are already using EN ISO 15223-1:2016 for our symbols as referenced in 60601-1.
Please advice!

PS: Other optional standards are
IEC/TR 60878 2003 Graphical symbols for electrical equipment in medical practice
IEC 60417 Graphical symbols for use on equipment

Pretty much every barcode type has its own ISO standard.

ISO/IEC 16388:2007 for Code 39
ISO/IEC 15420:2009 for UPC
etc., all found at Iso.org

If you make a barcode and need to measure how good it is (normally looking at color, contrast, line width, etc), you would buy a verifier which scans the code and gives it a grade. This is important to printers and stores that receive truckloads of things that should have good barcodes (they reject the whole truckload if the code is bad!).

A physical standard to test the barcode verifier exists and is available here:

Please notice that if you are using barcode for Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) of UDI on the device , you need to select a barcode representation which is allowed by the organisation issuing your UDI prefix . E.g. GS1 for healthcare application allows (its own application of ) UPC/EAN, Code128, ITF-14, dataBar and DataMatrix, but not the QR code; see https://www.gs1.org/docs/healthcare/GS1_Healthcare_Implementation_Guideline.pdf chap. 5

Or to put it another way; certain barcode symbologies are "public domain"- they are not managed for content and anyone can use them and put whatever data they want into them. UPC is the biggest example; GS1 manages the manufacturers code and keeps a product database of all UPC codes. They get $$$ for this from the user.

There are GS1 managed versions of Code 128, Datamatrix, Databar, and QRCode (the GS1 versions are all prefixed by "GS1" to distinguish them from the generic versions. ITF-14 is managed, but predates the GS1 management scheme.

There are generic versions of Code 128, Datamatrix, QR code, Code 39 and many other codes. A list and example is found here:
