Our work with industry

We work closely with our members – to deliver benefits the whole industry can enjoy

We work with our members to ensure our standards are correctly developed and deployed. And that benefits to the whole industry are realised. We do this in two ways.

  1. With our advisory boards we bring together business and thought leaders, policy makers and opinion formers to help us understand industry dynamics and their requirements, and to harmonise processes across industry where there is a proven need
  2. We use our technical groups to ensure our standards are developed and maintained in accordance with the industry requirements

How to join a group

As a GS1 UK member you’re eligible to join our groups. Most are open to all members, but some require an invitation. And although we facilitate all groups, it’s up to you to ensure their success by actively participating. Take a look at our groups and contact the group lead for more information.


Technical groups

Our technical groups bring together experts from a wide range of companies to develop and maintain our standards

Advisory boards
