GS1 adoption for Trusts


A significant number of Trusts have submitted their strategic outline plan to the Department of Health showing how they propose to implement GS1 standards as part of the eProcurement mandate. This step represents the end of the first phase of GS1 standards adoption and signals the move to the next phase - deployment. This is a major programme of work which is anticipated to run between 3 and 5 years for most Trusts.

As a Trust, it is important for you to have internal expertise in GS1 standards to support the programme deployment on a day-to-day basis. We offer a comprehensive and interactive onsite course in order to bring cross-functional teams within your Trust up to speed with the relevant standards and their application.

Who should attend?
  • Teams within your Trust who are expected to support the GS1 programme deployment
  • Individuals who can be the first line of support internally
  • Champions for GS1 and PEPPOL adoption
  • Programme leads
