Successful launch for GDSN Maintenance Release 3.1.3

GDSN has announced the successful launch of GDSN Maintenance Release 3.1.3, an update to the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) standard.

This release encompasses the implementation of the June 2017 Global Product Classification (GPC) publication, the addition of new codes, attributes and enhancements to existing attributes including increased field lengths and making certain attributes repeatable for language and values. In addition new modules were added to support functionality around child nutrition and product formulation statements.

This standard update was made possible by the dedicated work of the GMD-SMG group.

With the successful launch of GDSN Maintenance Release 3.1.3, we will continue to monitor, communicate and collaborate with the GDSN community to gather feedback and inform on future releases.
