The GS1 SmartSearch standard allows businesses to benefit from:

  • Better search results for consumers to find the products and information they need.
  • Greater visibility of their products in online searches.
  • 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.

This site documents one technical aspect of GS1 SmartSearch - the GS1 Web Vocabulary. The initial focus of the GS1 Web Vocabulary is consumer facing properties for clothing, shoes, food beverage/tobacco and properties common to all products. Food/Beverage/Tobacco properties will include 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.
