GEPIR (GS1 Electronic Party Information Registry) 2 2

3 GEPIR History Launched in 1999 by Member Organizations as a way to eliminate the need to manually answer questions around issuance of Global Company Prefix data GS1 France, GS1 Sweden and GS1 Switzerland established a protocol enabling the interlinking of the different membership databases of these MO’s Since its origination, 108 MO’s joined the GEPIR network Previous Versions 1.0 (‘99), 2.0 (‘02), 3.0 (‘04), 3.1 (’05) Latest Version (Version 3.2) of GEPIR (’11) Version 4.0 development in progress

4 GEPIR Basic Information
GEPIR is a Federated (Distributed) Registry Operated by the Member Organizations (MO’s) Any user can request information (Read Only) Implemented by connecting nodes set up and maintained by each MO Accessed by anybody (Search functionality) Web interface Machine to Machine Information from data maintained by GS1 MO’s Information regarding subscribers of other MO’s will be served by the respective MO’s

5 GEPIR Summary Total MO’s in GEPIR 111
There are 70 Member Organisations whose GEPIR services are hosted by the GS1 Global Office All updated to v3.2 August 2011 The GS1 Global Office supports the MO’s Hosting service for MO’s that require or request it The Use of the GSMP (GS1 GEPIR TDT) GS1 GO provides the development and implementation support for the GEPIR specifications Based upon a hybrid approach of a GO-hosted and non-GO-hosted environment

6 GEPIR Statistics as of February 2013
111 MO’s have data available through GEPIR 70 MO’s hosted at Global Office +41 MO’s locally hosted =111 Member Organizations 6 MO’s on Version 2.0 7 MO’s on Version 3.0 98 MO’s on Version 3.1 / 3.2 [70 hosted, 28 local) 11 MO’s-V3.1 July ‘ MO’s - V3.1/3.2 Oct ‘11

8 GEPIR Versioning Version 1 (Sunsetted July 2010) – First formal version Search by GTIN, GLN, SSCC, Company name Version 2 adds the possibility of refined company search Postal code and/or a city in order to receive precise results Also added cascading – The ability to request further info from other sources Backward Compatible with V1.0 Version 3.0 / 3.1 / XSD Schema-Based, Web Services Approach Now includes the ability to communicate a very small set of Item and Party information Introduces the concept of “Premium Users” 30+ queries from one user or GLN/IP combination

9 Functions of GEPIR Search for company ownership data, based on:
GTIN GLN SSCC Company Name Responses also can contain additional information List of Response Codes

18 GEPIR Strategy Execution
Version 4.0 is here, ready to implement! Update functionality GEPIR to handle resolution of all GS1 Keys Additional Methods (Get Root Directory, Get Router Detail) Additional Response Codes Resolution of GEPIR Work Requests GLN = Optional : GS1 Company Prefix (GCP) = Mandatory Additional attributes (GPS / Latitude Longitude, ) Additional User-Defined fields to enable Value-Added Services Alignment with the GS1 Global Data Dictionary & GS1 Architecture Solution for Alliance Numbers GS1 Company Prefixes from one MO managed by another MO Documentation Consolidation Current: 4 Specification documents + 4 Guideline documents New: 1 Specification + 1 Guideline document Better development tools Use Cases, Activity & Sequence Diagrams, UML Models
