  4. GEPIR transition

Verified by GS1 will replace GEPIR as of 31 December 2023.

Why are we making this change?

Verified by GS1 provides unique, trusted and verifiable product, company and location information for business partners and government entities. Since it’s launch several years ago, the Verified by GS1 service has grown both in terms of the number of GS1 identifiers to search, as well as the quality of data in the system.

This enhanced database of GS1 identifiers will provide a better user experience when searching for product, location and company information with fresher, more complete data than available in GEPIR.
