Standard spotlight: Updated GTIN Management Standard executive summary

One-page summary highlights the benefits of the GTIN Management Standard as well as the helpful Decision-Support Tool

In June 2016, a new GTIN Management Standard was approved that was the culmination of an industry-led effort to simplify and clarify the standard. Organised around a clear set of business principles and presented in an easy-to-understand format, the standard is simpler for businesses to comply with – and easier to share and explain.

The team also developed a Decision-Support Tool that provides a step-by-step process to help industry standardise the decision-making process.

“It made it easier to make clear decisions and communicate these decisions across the organisation – saving the company time and money.”
Lori Schrop
Director, Industry Standards at the J.M. Smucker Company

We’re highlighting these changes again to ensure that the community is aware and taking advantage of this improved standard.
