GS1 EANCOM® is a GS1 subset of the UN/EDIFACT standard (United Nations Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport).
It contains only the message elements required by business applications and mandated by the syntax. Omitted are optional elements not relevant for GS1 users.
GS1 EANCOM brings together the GS1 standards that identify trade items with logistics units and Global Location Numbers (GLNs) that show information about your trading partners.
GS1 EANCOM® standards consist of a set of files updated in 2014.
