GS1 standards are all about identifying, capturing, sharing and using information

GS1 standards make the supply chain more efficient and effective. They make it easier for consumers to find and buy the products they’re after. And they help ensure the safety of these products. In healthcare they identify patients, products and places – delivering better and more efficient patient care.

They give you a common language to identify, capture, share and use information. Here you’ll find all the technical documentation you need to understand and implement them.
