22Product Classification in GDSN Global Product Classification, GPC
23What is GPC?A system that gives buyers and sellers a common language for grouping (or categorising) products in the same way, everywhere in the worldSince 2007, GPC adoption has grown in coverage and in implementation in GDSNGPC is published in Oxford English and translated by Member Organisations to 12 other languagesGPC is continuously updated based on work requests from the user community

Product CLASSIFICATION CodeWHICH product is it?WHAT product is it?A codified key - provides a unique, international and non ambiguous way to identify an itemGrouping GTINs into the same category (GPC bricks) following common rules in a specific goalEach GTIN is electronically linked to a unique GPC brick codeThe GPC brick code is a mandatory data in GDSNGTIN allocation rules specify what product changes require a new GTINSometimes “the same” item has different GTINs in different markets
