A new validation overview is now available in the table above. The validations for all sectors of GS1 Belgilux and GS1 Netherlands have been merged on 1 tab. You can now filter more easily for the different countries (BE, NL and LU) and sectors and in the overview with changes (change log). The overview is very similar to the document already used for the FMCG sector. The classification and description of validations are new for the DIY, garden & pet sector. The new validation overview will still be available alongside the existing overview for the May 2023 release. This allows us to develop complex validations (with more variables).
2023 and 2024 release timetables
The Benelux DIY, Garden and Pet data model is updated regularly to include the latest sector news and change requests. That’s why 4 data model releases are published every year. A data model publication means that GS1 is releasing a new data model.
