GS1 uses a global system which classifies products clearly into categories: Global Product Classification (GPC).

GPC allows suppliers and customers to group together and classify products in a standardised and unambiguous manner. The GPC is flexible, easily scalable, and contains clear and unambiguous definitions.

Below you will find information on the basic principles of the GPC system, and information on how to assign GPC codes (bricks) to your products.
