GS1 has announced that the GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GS1 GDSN) now contains data on over 25 million products
The GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GS1 GDSN) enables companies to share product data accurately across the world using GS1 standards.
In November 2017, the GS1 GDSN reached a historic milestone: it now contains information on over 25 million products. This makes the GS1 GDSN an exceptionally rich source of trusted product data.
The fact that almost 50,000 companies across 241 countries now use the GS1 GDSN proves the value of this powerful platform. It helps companies bring new products to market quickly, meet the demand of today's data-hungry consumers, while also reducing industry costs.
The GS1 GDSN also contains information on over 2 million healthcare products, showing the global implementation momentum in the healthcare sector for accurate product data to improve efficiency, support regulatory requirements and improve patient safety.
