GS1's Use Standards

Businesses can also combine different GS1 standards to streamline business processes such as traceability.

Tracking products across the healthcare supply chain eliminates counterfeit healthcare products, increases patient safety and complies with regulations.

What is traceability?

Traceability in healthcare enables you to see the movement of prescription drugs or medical devices across the supply chain. You can trace backwards to identify the history of the transfers and locations of a product, from the point of manufacture onwards. And you can track forwards to see the intended route of the product towards the point of care.

Businesses are increasingly only as good as their data. High quality data is essential for capturing the interest of consumers and driving online sales.

Our standards give you the tools to build a firm foundation for improving data quality and collaborative commerce. They will make sure your organisation's data is complete, consistent and compliant with regulations.
