Guideline and technical specifications for Trade Item Information
GS1 Trade Item Information leads to high data quality
Trade item information is important for both the buyer and supplier. The buyer needs to have information about the article to ensure that ordering and delivery are carried out correctly. The supplier must make sure that the item will fit on the shelf and be displayed in the best manner.
By following the rules of GS1 Trade Item Information, data will be consistent with the actual item and both parties will always have the same information. The result is high data quality.
