GS1 standards for suppliers

In 2014, the Department of Health mandated that all NHS Trusts must adopt GS1 standards and this means all their suppliers must become GS1 compliant. The deadline for compliance is 2019/20.

If you manufacture or supply medical devices or pharmaceuticals then you’ll need to comply with the Department of Health mandate – whether it’s locally for the NHS, the private sector or globally – there are strict new regulations you must meet in order to continue to do business.

We can help you to understand what these requirements mean for you. And what your business needs to do to meet new regulations – not to mention the benefits you can achieve in operational efficiencies and patient safety too.
