Standards that fit, now and tomorrow

GS1 standards are vital for apparel brands. Through their adoption, products move more efficiently through the global supply chain, reaching customers faster and at a lower cost.

Our standards provide a common language for global trading partners. GS1 Unique identifiers work across mobile, online and offline retail spaces - worldwide. Our messaging standards allow you to automate your non-value adding administrative tasks. And GS1 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology improves your inventory control.
