GS1 Joins The World Wide Web Consortium To Improve The Future Of Product Identification and Visibility On The Web
As part of the ongoing work on GS1 Digital, GS1 has become a members of the The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Becoming a member of W3C will bring a variety of benefits to GS1 including working closely and inputting on the standards that are built for the web, as well as allowing GS1 standards to be aligned and integrated with current web standards where appropriate.
“I believe that our organisations can work together in the coming years to bridge two important communities. This will result in increased impact of both GS1 and W3C in the realm of designing and implementing standards to further enable global commerce and logistics for the benefit of the industry and consumers,” said Steve Bratt, Chief Technology Officer at GS1 Global Office.
