Standards & Applications
GS1 standards create a common foundation for business by uniquely identifying, accurately capturing and automatically sharing important information on products, locations, assets and more. GS1 standards and applications make it possible for companies to speak the same language, connect with each other and enable visibility in the supply chain, no matter where they are based.
GS1 is dedicated to the development and implementation of open, interoperable and user driven standards in Supply Chain Management. Open standards enable interoperability, flexibility and vendor independence, which in turn result in reduction of end product costs to businesses and consumers. Flow of physical supplies and data sharing/querying also become faster, more accurate and seamless across multiple trading partners in supply chains.
