Product safety and counterfeiting are serious risks for government and consumers.
Our standards help track products across the supply chain and trace histories from factory to consumer, making it easier to:
The increase number of legislative requirements with regards to end-to-end supply chain visibility means additional efforts from both the companies and the government.
GS1 standards help consumer safety stakeholders to implement systems that enable them to increase safety of products.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
The OECD has created a Global Recalls Portal to bring together information on product recalls being issued around the world, on a regular basis, together in one place.
The portal includes information on mandatory and voluntary consumer product recalls which were issued by a governmental body and were made publicly available.
The Portal uses GS1’s Product Identification code (GTIN) to identify uniquely, unambiguously and internationally a specific product, and GS1’s Classification code (GPC) to leverage semantic technologies for smart searches. The use of GPC allows for the automation of recall reports by categorization.
