3.16 Referenced sources

GS1 standards and guidelines, particularly those of a technical nature, should include a citation reference to all source material used in the development. Typically these sources can be categorised as:

Normative: Sources which are directly referenced or relied upon by the standard or guideline

Non-normative: Sources which were used in the development, but are not directly referenced by the standard or guideline itself. Analogous to the bibliography of an academic article.

All such references should appear as the last section of the GS1 standard or guideline with the suggested layout and wording. Hyperlinks to online referenced sources should be used wherever possible. In line with section 2.11.2 links to www.gs1.org should default to open in the same browser window, links to non-GS1 websites should default to open in a new browser window.
