The Maintenance Group manages, maintains and develops GS1 standards on the basis of market developments and market demand. The starting point is to resolve business issues and to optimize exchange. The ultimate result is to safeguard the GS1 standards (implementation convention).
Additionally and when needed, there is a possibility to create temporary working groups. For example working groups to optimize a specific part of the datamodel, whether this is a class/segment of bricks, or working groups about one or more specific attributes to be optimized for multiple bricks.
