The Global Trade Item (GTIN) is defined in the GS1 General Specifications and provides a global supply chain solution by identifying any trade item that may be priced, or ordered, or invoiced at any point in the supply chain upon which there is a need to retrieve pre-defined information.
The GTIN Management Standard is designed to help industry make consistent decisions about the unique identification of trade items in open supply chains. This standard has been developed in accordance with the GS1 Global Standards Management Process (GSMP). This website, which aims to be fully consistent with the GTIN Management Standard, is intended to provide multi-lingual, easy access and simple navigation/sharing. Should any ambiguity or interpretation questions arise, the GS1 standards should be referenced.
