Instill confidence in your product master data

Various GS1 Member Organisations (MOs) around the world are offering Master Data Services (MDS) and Brand Owner (BO) Certifications to help you create and verify high quality product master data.

Master Data Services vary and can include:

  • Barcode verification services to ensure the barcodes on products work at the point of sale and are following the general specification
  • Measurement (weights and/or dimensions) services to ensure GS1 standards adherence
  • Data creation and verification services to ensure digital data is a twin to the data on the packaging and adheres to attribute standards

Running your own Master Data lab(s)? Some MOs have Brand Owner certification programmes to enable you to assert greater confidence to your trading partners that your internal processes adhere to best-in-class data quality management principles and your data complies with GS1 standards.

Contact your local MO today to learn more about their master data services.
