|GS1 eInvoicing meeting in Dublin 18th March|
The European commission has launched an initiative to simplify eInvoicing in Europe. The idea being that each national member state of the EU sets up a national forum on eInvoicing (Before June 2011) to address the EU’s ‘16’ action points and then to report back to the EU’s master forum on eInvoicing.
At the upcoming meeting GS1 MOs will:
a) Get GS1 MOs involved in the local national eInvoicing and come up with a common position on the 16 issues at hand (see attachment). By having a common GS1 position, we should not only save individuals’ time by having the responses to the issues ready, but also of course have a united voice as a GS1 organisation.
b) Inform the MO community of this process and facilitate their involvement – not all MOs know about these for a, indeed, even I didn’t know until Jim and Anders brought it to my attention.
c) Get feedback from national eInvoicing for a for further dissemination to other MOs – we need to know what topics are hot in which countries to enable a suitable GS1 response.

|GS1 in Europe Workshop - Increasing European competitiveness through efficient information flows|
| On 17 November 2008, GS1 in Europe was pleased to invite to an event in Brussels on eGovernment with a special focus on waste management. eGovernment is an important strategic component for the European Union to reduce administrative burden and to increase competitiveness. |
It is put into practice in various industries, policy areas and administrative procedures. However, questions remain on how eGovernment can be even better implemented in practice. Waste management is one particular policy field in which eGovernment initiatives have already been successfully applied in order to fulfil complex planning, management, and reporting requirements.
The workshop organised by GS1 in Europe provided a forum to discuss best practice examples and develop answers on how further progress in the implementation of eGovernment can be made.

|GS1 in Europe Traceability Workhop|
The last GS1 in Europe Traceability Workshop took place in Paris, 16-17 October 2008, at Radisson SAS Hotel at Disneyland Resort, as a continuation of previously held Traceability Workshops in Amsterdam (2004 and 2006).
As the traceability was a very „hot“ topic in Europe (and wider) several years ago, due mainly to emerging regulatory requirements, such as the EU Regulation 178/2002 in food law, it may appear that we have done our „traceability mission“ and that there is almost nothing new to add to this topic.
But, the reality is slightly different. Rapid development of information and communication technologies (ICT) as well as a number of new regulations, international new markets, rapidly growing cross-border trading, and, increasingly, well informed consumers, have greatly affected the business processes in supply chains and placed new challenges in front of traceability solutions.
Through this Workshop the attendants got:
• GS1 Traceability vision and updates, including:
- Global Traceability Standard
- Updates on all new projects, such as Global Traceability Conformance programme and Traceability Implementation Guidelines
- Updates on traceability activities in Healthcare and Fresh Produce
- Updates on available technologies in traceability and their co-existence
• Updates on application of traceability confronted to new challenges, such as sustainability or cross-border trading
• Updates on traceability implementations and projects
• Opportunity to participate in working sessions, where you can express your needs and discuss your requirements, giving us the guidelines for the future traceability solutions development
• Opportunity to participate in on-site visit to a company and see how the GS1 standards works in practice
