UPC codes who assigns them?

I havent’ been able to find this one out by the usual methods. I know that a manufacturer is assigned a prefix by which all it’s producs are identified but who gives the manufacturer their number?

In conjunction with the Masons and the Illuminati! They are keeping records of all or purchases to send to the alien leaders so when they come down to take over they can assimilate into our culture with greater ease by using brand names.
