Simple and Clear GTIN Management Rules

New GS1 GTIN Management Standard makes decisions easier for companies.

For years, businesses across industry and around the world have applied standardised rules to make well-informed decisions about product identification, using GTINs. Over time, however, the GTIN Allocation Rules became difficult to work with, frustrating to use and full of ambiguity. This resulted in a growing lack of industry compliance and unnecessary added costs.

The new GS1 GTIN Management Standard helps address these issues.
