How GS1 EANCOM works

GS1 EANCOM® are GS1 eCom Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) standards that integrate information sent electronically with the physical flow of goods.

Business benefits

Provides a ready-to-use UN/EDIFACT subset agreed between trading partners world-wide, eliminating the work involved in adapting the UN/EDIFACT standard

Use of GS1 keys ensures data quality, eliminates errors and avoids sending redundant information in the electronic messages (like product specifications, party addresses)

Any UN/EDIFACT components can be added to the EANCOM subset at the user’s request, with any EANCOM additions submitted for inclusion in UN/EDIFACT
