The Brand Owner, the organisation that owns the specifications of the trade item, regardless of where and by whom it is manufactured, is normally responsible for the allocation of the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN).
Different GTINs must be allocated to every different product that the Brand Owner is responsible for, and detailed rules have been developed to help companies allocate them correctly. For further information, please see GTIN Management Rules.
