EAN-128 / UCC-128 is the same as Code 128, except, EAN 128 defines a set of application identifiers (AI's), and associated rules for defining a code. UCC/EAN-128 encodes data as well as defining what that data represents. SSC 14 (UCC 14, DUN 14) and SSCC 18 (UCC-18) can be encoded via UCC 128 by using appropriate application identifier.

An Application Identifier (AI) is a prefix code used to identify the meaning and the format of the data that follows it (data field). There are application identifiers for identification, traceability, dates, quantity, measurements, locations, and many other types of information. For example, the AI for batch number is 10, and the batch number AI is always followed by an alphanumeric batch code not to exceed 20-characters.
