Where a loose produce item (product 9) is placed in a bag (product 10) by the consumer, product 9 and 10 have the same GTIN.
New GTIN for:
Existing higher-level packaging
Hierarchy level of GTIN assignment
Example business scenarios that require GTIN change
Loose Produce items presented for sale at the POS, either individually or in a bag (placed by the consumer) will be identified with the same GTIN. Placing the loose produce items in a bag by the consumer does not change the GTIN.
Consequence if rule not applied: GTIN assignment would be inaccurate
