Kits are collections of non-homogeneous, separable components that are identified, purchased, and supplied as a single trade item for a specific clinical or commercial purpose.
There are two primary types of kits:
- Finished product kit: Kits that are an assembly of only finished goods. Components are trade items, where each component is a trade item identified by a GTIN. Components do not need to be individually packaged; but are independently identified at the component packaging level, independent of the kit (e.g. may be sellable, identified and available for trade).
- Manufactured kit: Kits that are completed or finished in the kitting process. At least one component of a manufactured kit is not a finished trade item and therefore is not identified with a GTIN.
