UPC-E Barcode

This Symbology is also known as Universal Product Code version E, UPC-E Supplement 5/Five-digit Add-On, UPC-E Supplement 2/Two-digit Add-On, UPC-E+5, UPC-E+2, UPC-E0, E0, UPC-E1, E1, GTIN-12 with lead "0", GS1-12, UCC-12

UPC-E is a variation of UPC-A which allows for a more compact barcode by eliminating "extra" zeros.
Since the resulting UPC-E barcode is about half the size as an UPC-A barcode, UPC-E is generally used on products with very small packaging where a full UPC-A barcode couldn't reasonably fit.
A UPC-E barcode represents 6 digits with an implied number system 0. However, a Number System 1 can be used as well.

Sample of a UPC-E Barcode
The value to encode by UPC-E has the following structure and it's the same as for UPC-A (a.k.a. GTIN-12):
Add-On or Supplement code
The Add-On Symbols were designed to encode information supplementary to that in the main bar code symbol on periodicals and paperback books. The Add-On can be composed of 2 or 5 digits only.

Sample of an UPC-E Two-Digit Add-On Barcode
Light Margin Indicators - a greater than (>) and/or less than (<) character - are intended to protected the essential light areas to the left and right of the code that the barcode scanner needs to recognize the beginning and end.
