Data Matrix Rectangular Extension (DMRE)

Data Matrix Rectangular Extension codes are extensions to the Data Matrix ECC 200 specification described in the ISO/IEC standard 16022.

DMRE adds 12 additional codes to the 6 defined in the ISO/IEC standard 16022 (see Datamatrix) and their principal purpose is to allow for more data to be encoded in symbols of smaller sizes and different shapes.
