Exchanging product data in the DIY, Garden & Pet sector

You’ve been asked to use the GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) to exchange product data. 

GS1 GDSN provides companies with specific sectoral data model structure and exchange product data in a standardised format. Its use improves the quality and completeness of identification, marketing, logistical, financial and regulatory data. It ensures the accessibility of product information for all partners, right up to the end consumer.

My Product Manager from GS1 Belgium & Luxembourg enables you to manage your product information and exchange it in a standardised way to customers, all over the world via GS1 GDSN.

Global Product Classification (GPC)

GPC allows suppliers and customers to group together and classify products in a standardised and unambiguous manner.  


Product images and other digital assets

Product images are an essential part of the product sheets, but also things like instruction videos, manuals and much more can be exchanged via GS1 GDSN.

Measure a product

Measurement rules are intended to facilitate a logical and replicable process for determining the packaging dimensions for a particular item.

Hazardous substances

The information around hazardous substances, SDS and DOP can also be exchanged via GS1 GDSN. This can be done both in the fields of the datamodel, and by sending the documents themselves.
