Overview

Being able to identify, track and trace pharmaceuticals and medical devices is crucial for an efficient supply chain and essential for patient safety. To support this, GS1 Standards are approved by regulatory bodies around the world to enable suppliers to meet local legislation.

Requirements for the Unique Device Identification in the US, the Falsified Medicines Directive, EU Medical Device Regulation and many more regulations around the world can be met through the adoption of GS1 identification, barcode and data standards.
