Local Code List 3.x

A GS1 participating country may impose restrictions on the proper use within one country of a globally standardized code list. In one country there may be:

  • A sub-set of target market defined valid values from within the full set of the global code list provided in the GS1 XML schema, EANCOM and EPC
  • A sub-set of target market defined valid values from within the full set of the global code list provided in the GS1-adopted ISO standard code list or other external standard body code list
  • A sub-set of target market defined valid values for a valid subset of valid types, excluding other global values from use in that country that are for other types
  • Open text fields in the global standards that are restricted to a local set of code lists by the defined target market

     

  • GS1 MO defined valid values
  • Data Recipient defined valid values

In each of the cases above, the use of the global standard in the one country is restricted to a sub-set of valid values and the rest of the globally approved values cannot be used. The inherent problem for a trading partner engaging in electronic commerce in a region is to identify which value is valid:

  • in which country
  • for which context
  • according to which authority
  • for use in a country that the trading partner is exporting to
  • for use in a country that the trading partner is importing from
