GS1 Compliance

Global Standard 1 (GS1) is a non-profit organization that was conceived to minimize this inherent confusion by developing a global standard for product attributes and product imagery.

A New Standard

For years everyone involved in the production, shipping distribution, and sale of a product identified that product by their proprietary schema making it difficult, if not impossible, for anyone involved in the process to accurately communicate information about a product that would be comprehensible by the recipient.  Because there existed multiple versions of the same product data, miscommunication was high and confusion among consumers was inevitable. Manufacturers, shippers, distributors, and retailers are able to communicate and share product information seamlessly.
