What Do Bar Codes Mean?

Question of the day can the first 3 digits a barcode indicate the country of origin? For example 471 is Made in Taiwan.
690-692 then it is MADE IN CHINA .
00 - 09 USA & CANADA
30 - 37 FRANCE
40 - 44 GERMANY
47 ... Taiwan
50 UK

Drum role please.........the answer is no, not always. If a company has it's packaging headquarters in Mexico but all their products are shipped in from Africa, then the bar code will state that the product is from Mexico.
