When all relevant and mandatory data of the product have been collected from the start, the data entry process will be far less time consuming, because there will be no backflow and follow-ups.
All departments involved in entering data entry, have data available right away which means that the data entry process is not unnecessarily interrupted. At the same time it is an advantage to the supplier that all data entries and corrections are only to be made in one system: one-time data entry reduces to risk or errors.
More and more documentation is required due to both national and international legislation. GS1Trade Sync is a tool to ensure that you comply with the applicable laws in relation to required item master data. EU Regulation 1169/2011, which took effect on December 13, 2014, increased the requirements regaring the types of item master data that information providers must make available to their customers:
All food packaging in the EU must be provided with common and more comprehensive information. The purpose is to make it easier for consumers to understand label information. With the additional information, legislators want to give consumers a better basis for their purchasing decisions. The information must also be available in web shops.
With the master data service, GS1Trade Sync, you will be able to send data to USA, France, Germany, England, Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium and others.
Among others the retailers Walmart, Rewe, Carrefour, Amazon, El Corte Inglés, ICA and Albert Heijn want to receive item master data through the global network GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network), which GS1Trade Sync is part of.

At the same time it is also possible to receive data from your foreign suppliers as long as they make use of the GDSN network.
Twice a year, the GDSN standard is updated. This is the standard the GS1Trade Sync platform is based on. These updates take place in order to constantly update the standard in relation to new or changed needs on the different markets where the standard is used.
However, not all of the changes that are deployed have a direct influence on how we use the GDSN standard on the Danish market. Below you will find a brief overview of the significant changes that take place with the respective GDSN releases.
On GS1 Gobal's homepage you can always find current and upcoming documentation of the GDSN standard. At our Documentation page, you can find the latest updated Danish documentation covering the attributes we primarily use on the Danish market.
