Rules for product images in the DIY, Garden and Pet sector

Product images available via GS1 GDSN

Since 01/05/2021, a product image in accordance with the GS1 guidelines is expected for each product sheet exchanged via the GS1 GDSN network. 

This request from retailers applies both to product sheets created directly in My Product Manager and to product sheets registered in a GS1 GDSN datapool and published for the Belgium-Luxembourg target markets.  

Interim measures apply to images of existing products to allow everyone to produce a compliant product image within a realistic timeframe.
