The TINP scheme was designed by tango.info to be used instead of the GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) scheme where tango-related items need to be covered. It covers all items that GTIN does, plus tango items that GTIN does not cover due to producer not having assigned them numbers.
- All pages starting with TINP: Special:PrefixIndex/TINP.
- All pages starting with TIN: Special:PrefixIndex/TIN.
There exist several TINP-based descriptors.
See TINP usage
The TINP includes a check digit calculated by the same method as for GTIN.
Errors and fixes
tango.info may make errors in its use of TINPs. Fixes are published at the page "TINP fix".
Invalid TINPs will be kept and point to the replacement TINP if any.
- TINPs will never be deleted.
- If a TINP is found to be invalid (check digit calculation fails) it is kept and points to the corrected TINP. A record on TINP fix will be created.
- If a TINP is found to have been linked to an album that instead has another TINP, it will point there as long as no TINP that is a GTIN refers to another tango.info product. GTIN compliance comes first. A record on TINP fix will be created.
