UPC-E is, in essence, a short form of UPC-A for use on small items. Only 6 numbers are represented within the 'start' and 'end' number pair. There is a 2-bar guard element at the start as for UPC-A, but only a single-bar guard element at the end. The inclusion of Optical Character Recognition numbers is optional.
