How GDSN Works
The GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network connects trading partners to the GS1 Global Registry® via a network of interoperable GDSN-certified data pools
There are five simple steps that allow trading partners to synchronise item, location and price data with each other:
The GS1 Global Registry is the GDSN's "information directory" that details who has subscribed to trade item or party data, guarantees the uniqueness of the registered items and parties, and ensures that all data pools in the network are complying with a standards-based set of validation rules.
GS1-Certified Data Pools are electronic catalogues of standardised item data. They serve as a source and/or a recipient of master data. Data pools can be run by a GS1 Member Organisation or by a solution provider. Download the latest list of all GDSN-certified data pools.
