Nearest schema.org equivalent:

The GS1 Web Vocabulary collects terms defined in various GS1 standards and data systems and made available for general use following Linked Data principles. It is designed as an extension to schema.org and, where relevant, mappings and relationships arising from that vocabulary are made explicit.

The initial focus of the GS1 Web Vocabulary is consumer-facing properties for clothing, shoes, food beverage/tobacco and properties common to all products.

This includes properties related to EU 1169 as defined in the GDSN and GS1 Source Standards. In addition, the vocabulary includes the definition of parties and of a product offer (a product offered by a party for a price). Properties and their definitions come from existing GS1 standards including GDSN, GS1 Source and GPC. Exceptions to this rule include the definition of Offer which does not exist in any of the above standards.

New terms are developed and ratified according to the Global Standards Management Process. Terms may be suggested and commented on in the vocabulary’s GitHub repository .

The GS1 Web Vocabulary was originally developed as the primary output of the GS1 SmartSearch standard but it now fulfils a broader remit. The  GS1 SmartSearch standard enables businesses to benefit from:

  • More accurate search results for consumers to find the products and information they need.
  • A lower bounce rate, i.e. people landing on a page and immediately navigating away as it's not relevant to them.
  • Improved conversion rate from visits to sales.
  • Improved, accurate online product information.
  • Shared product information via consumer-facing mobile devices and websites, which ultimately drive sales.

Further information and support tools for the GS1 SmartSearch are available.

The GS1 Digital Link standard makes it possible to express any set of GS1 identifiers as a Web URI and therefore the identified item can be the subject of machine-readable facts and assertions made about it. The GS1 Web Vocabulary includes the link types used in GS1 Digital Link to annotate links to related resources, such as product information pages, instruction manuals, related videos, certification information, brand owner APIs, traceability information and more.

Terms from Scan4Transport cover extended address information suitable for deliveries, especially 'last mile' deliveries.

BIC_FACILITYBIC Facility Code (BFC) The BIC Facility Code (BFC) began life in the 1980s as the “LoCode” identifier under ISO 9897. Now a “child code” of the UN/Locode, the BIC Facility Code is used to identify container facilities such as depots, container yards, container freight stations, M&R vendors and other facilities in the container supply chain. The BIC Facility Code is complementary to the SMDG Ocean Terminal Code, which is also a child code of the UN/Locode. The BIC Facility Code covers container facility types other than ocean terminals.
CRD_LOCATION_CODECentral Reference File Database (CRD) covers both Locations and Organisations. The Location Reference File uniquely identifies physical rail points (e.g. stations, customer sidings, loading places)The Central Reference File Database (CRD) (formerly known as Central Repository Domain) is a centralised database that stores Location Codes and Company Codes required by European regulation, and makes them available to users. CRD contains the following reference files: - List of Countries (ISO 3166) - The Location Reference File which uniquely identifies physical rail points (e.g. stations, customer sidings, loading places) containing the Location Code (which includes the Country Code) - The Partner Reference File uniquely identifies all rail actors who exchange information (Company Codes); Each company actor must have a unique Company Code assigned by UIC
ENI_NUMBERAn ENI number (European Number of Identification or European Vessel Identification Number).An ENI number (European Number of Identification or European Vessel Identification Number) is a registration for ships capable of navigating on inland European waters. It is a unique, eight-digit identifier that is attached to a hull for its entire lifetime, independent of the vessel's current name or flag. ENI was introduced by the Inland Transport Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe in their meeting on 11–13 October 2006 in Geneva. It is based on the Rhine Vessel certification system previously used for ships navigating the Rhine, and is comparable to the IMO ship identification number.
FR_SIRETSystème d'identification du répertoire des établissementsThe SIRET number, issued by Insee (the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies) identifies each establishment that is part of a company in France. There are as many SIRET numbers as there are establishments in the company. An establishment is a geographically located operating or production unit, separated but legally dependent on a company. It is the place where the company's activity is carried out. It is composed of 14 digits: the 9 digits of the SIREN number + the 5 digits of the NIC (internal classification number specific to each establishment).
IATA_CODEInternational Air Transport Association (IATA) codeThree-letter geocode designating many airports and metropolitan areas around the world, defined by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The IATA three-letter codes are a subset of the UN/LOCODE codelist.
IMO_NUMBERInternational Maritime Organization NumberIMO number is an important identifier given to oil/gas vessels, shipping vessels, and fishing vessels that is painted visibly across the vessel and bolted to the hull
ISPS_CODEInternational Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code)The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) is an International code that was conceived following the September 11th 2001 terrorists attacks in the USA. It's primary purpose is to identify and counter any terrorist threat to the Maritime Industry particularly against ships and ports. The code also serves to improve security against armed robbery, theft and piracy. The code came into force in 2004 and prescribes responsibilities to: 1) Governments 2) Shipping companies 3) Shipboard personnel 4) Port/facility personnel
ISRS_LOCATION_CODEInternational Ship Reporting Standard or ISRS location code The International Ship Reporting Standard (ISRS) location code is a 20 character alphanumeric code consisting of: - UN country code (2 characters) e.g., NL = Netherlands, - UN location code (3 characters) e.g., RTM = Rotterdam, - Fairway section code (5 characters) e.g., 00102 = Nieuwe Maas, - Object reference code (5 characters) e.g., 66666 = ID administration or terminal code, - Fairway section hectometre e.g., 00050 = hectometres from zero point of Fairway section 00102. The ISRS Location Code is created once and shall not be changed throughout the lifetime of the object. The Standard / Commission Regulation for Electronic Ship Reporting requires the ISRS Location Code of all objects relevant for reporting of voyages, e.g. ports, terminals, passage points, etc.

MMSI_NUMBERMaritime Mobile Service Identity numberMaritime Mobile Service Identities (MMSIs) are nine-digit numbers used by maritime digital selective calling (DSC), automatic identification systems (AIS), and certain other equipment to uniquely identify a ship or a coast radio station.
OAR_IDOpen Apparel Registry IDOpen Apparel Registry ID. A sixteen-digit numbering system which uniquely identities global apparel facilities. The ID consists of a Country code, Origin date (the date the facility first appeared in the registry), a General ID and Check ID. OAR IDs are allocated by the Open Apparel Registry to all facilities contributed to the database for the purposes of enabling industry collaboration and improved identification of factories, as well as powering interoperability between industry databases.
OPEN_LOCATION_CODEOpen Location CodeThe Open Location Code is a geocode system for identifying an area anywhere on the Earth. It was developed at Google's Zürich engineering office, and released late October 2014. Location codes created by the OLC system are referred to as 'plus codes'.
SMDG_CODESMDG Container terminal codeThe SMDG Terminal Code List (TCL) contains codes for container handling terminal facilities that are called by seagoing cargo vessels in maritime transport.
UN_LOCODEUN/LOCODEUN/LOCODE, the United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations, is a geographic coding scheme developed and maintained by United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.
