Consumer Safety

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:

  • Verify authenticity
  • Comply with product safety regulations
  • Run efficient, effective recalls.

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.
