English term or phrase: UPC sticker
I guess this is the barcode sticker but what does UPC/ UCC stand for?

German translation:UPC/UCC-Etikett
Explanation:
Here's what UPC / UCC stands for. There does seem to be some confusion as to what the U in UPC stands for - universal or uniform. Check out the following web sites for more info:

UCC
Uniform Code Council, formerly Uniform Product Code Council; the organization which administers the UPC and other retail standards.
U.P.C. (Universal Product Code)
Most commonly recognized as the 12 digit code found on grocery shelf items. Adopted by the U.S. grocery industry and later by other retail industries. The U.P.C. is composed of a number system character, a five digit manufacturer number assigned by the UCC, a five digit product code assigned by the manufacturer, and a modulo 10 check digit as the 12th digit.
UPCC
Universal Product Carton Code; a standard administered by the UCC.
