A change of over 20% to a physical dimension, on any axis (e.g., height, width, depth), or gross weight, requires assignment of a new GTIN. Changes below 20% may require a new GTIN at the discretion of the brand owner.
New GTIN for:
Existing higher-level packaging
Example business scenarios that require GTIN change
The gross weight of a product increases by 50% from 0.34 kg (0.75 lb) to 0.51 kg (1.125 lb) due to a change in the packaging material.
A case or pallet orientation (there is no change to the trade item count) may be changed such that one or more axis changes.
In order to reduce the variety of folding box formats, a folding box with the dimensions of 47 x 18 x 127 mm is changed to 62 x 20 x 115 mm.
