Global Data Model Development

From the data excellence working groups, every year some topics are prioritised and worked on in detail throughout the year. One of the best examples of this is the Global Data Model, which partly started as a European effort in order to harmonise the local data models for the European continent. This project has gone global with the help of GS1 Global Office, other regions and member organisations and of course massive industry envolvement. In April 2020 the global data model for the product categories Food, Near-Food Pet Food, Alcoholic Beverages will have been ratified as a GS1 standard with regional and global governance. Next steps within this project are validations, harmonisation of code lists and the start on new product categories.
