What does the Supermarkets Scanning Code of Practice cover?
We’ve got a lot of products in our supermarkets. Everything from oranges (yum) to dog leashes (woof). It’s important we keep track of what comes in and what goes out. We do this with a bit of help from the Scanning Code of Practice. This covers all scanned merchandise within the supermarket, including items that are registered using a PLU number (Price Look up Number). However the code does not cover:
• Liquor and tobacco products.
• Items with a shelf price of $50 or higher.
• Where an operator error has occurred, for instance the wrong PLU number has been keyed in or the wrong product is identified by the checkout operator.
