17 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 17 GS1 Architecture Group: Rationale and Criteria for Membership continued… These Criteria apply to End Users, Solution Providers, Member Organisations, Research Community Representatives: Provides valuable real world insight into how the GS1 System will be deployed Engages end users at an ownership level; goes beyond superficial implementations of the GS1 System Fosters the integration of the GS1 system into commercial solutions and products; goes beyond superficial implementations of the GS1 System Protects the interests of the broader GS1 stakeholders Must have Knowledge of GS1 System, IT infrastructure/networks, and Supply Chain Must be an active participant in the standards process Must have current knowledge of architecture and input to architecture of their organization. Must have a statement of support by the GS1 MO CEO where end user company is headquartered Must be recommended by a committee of their peers

18 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 18 GS1 Architecture Group: Rationale and Criteria for Membership – Team Specific All GS1 Architecture Group Members should possess:  Experience in business or marketing requirements gathering  Experience in technical system design or architecture design  Prior working knowledge of other standards bodies is helpful, but not required. Core Team  The Core Team provides cross functional coordination and visibility throughout GS1 Architecture Group, as such Core Team members must have extensive knowledge of the current state of the overall GS1 system, product offerings and technical specifications  The Core Team charters and disbands Sub Teams as required Sub Team  The Sub Teams provide expert insight to deep technical issues related specifically to a particular technology, as such Sub Team members must have extensive knowledge of the current state of the entity application or topic and technical specifications  Chair of the Sub Team will serve as the main representative to the Core Team  A Call-for-Participation will be sent to the GS1 Community to populate the Sub Teams should be made. This open approach ensures wider representation from the community. The Core Team determines the balance and representation of each Sub Team.  Sub Team membership should be limited to 12 persons, excluding the Core Team representative  Sub Teams do not vote, but make recommendations to the Core Team with divergent opinions noted.  Each Sub Team shall elect a Co-Chairperson (and additional co-Chairs if required).

19 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 19 GS1 Architecture Group: Participation Requirements Members who leave their company or do not participate in 3 consecutive calls will receive an requesting whether or not they wish to continue participating. If the member leaves their company but wishes to continue to serve, he/she may complete their term provided the new company is a member of the GS1 community and the Architecture Group approves via vote. Member will then reapply at end of term as required by all members. If a GS1or MO staff member leaves their company, the seat is considered vacant and will be reassigned. If the participant does not participate in 3 subsequent meetings, another will be sent requesting that they withdraw from the group. If there is no response to this second , their names will be removed from the roster of the group and a new member will be appointed to take their place. Members can petition twice to be reinstated via the BCS Members are expected to attend all meetings and conference calls for their assigned teams and are welcome but not obligated to attend any meetings and conference calls of any other teams within the overall Architecture Group. Follow-up and report on all action items and assignments at and between meetings Governance and legal Members of the GS1 Architecture Group (Core & Sub Teams) will be required to sign Intellectual Property and Opt-In agreements in order perform their duties within the group.  The Core team will be required to sign a blanket Opt-In to cover all possible topics.  Sub team members will be required to sign an Opt-In relevant to topics covered by that working groups. Sub team Invited guests will also be required to sign relevant Opt-In agreements. A list of relevant topics per Sub team will need to be maintained. It may be decided that blanket Opt-Ins are more appropriate,depending on the nature of the Sub team.

20 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 20 GS1 Architecture Group: Meeting Frequency The GS1 Architecture Group Teams will meet face-to-face as required.  Conference calls will be held on a regular basis.  Subject matter experts will be invited as required. Meeting agendas should be circulated to members two weeks in advance of face- to-face meetings and one week in advance of teleconferences and are posted to the appropriate Community Room at the same time. Minutes of meetings are drafted for approval by the group and once approved are made available to all GSMP participants. Approved minutes should be posted within two weeks of the meeting. The Architecture Group will maintain a rolling six month meeting schedule.

21 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 21 GS1 Architecture Group: Core Team Voting Process Decision-making is achieved though consensus, which is defined as approval without sustained opposition. Invited guests need not be part of the decision-making process. One member equals one vote. If the team is unable to achieve consensus after all avenues have been explored then a formal ISDP voting procedure will be invoked. In cases when votes are taken the minority view should be conveyed to the BCS together with the majority decision.

22 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 22 GS1 Architecture Group: Core Team Responsibility The Core Team is responsible to provide to the Sub Teams: Final recommendations on issues with Architectural principles and Strategic Issues Guidance and Maintenance of the GS1 Architectural Principles Prompt response to all ‘Request for Findings’ Be available to attend Sub Team Conference Calls or Physical Meetings, if requested One (or more) member(s) of the Core Team will be assigned to each Sub Team.

23 Moving forward together, to better serve your business ©2009 GS1 23 GS1 Architecture Group: Other areas Community Management The role of the Architecture Group and work items need to be recognized and understood across the GS1 community through periodic community outreach Meeting minutes and agendas will be published and accessible by GS1 community IT support and infrastructure Internal repository of GS1 Architecture Group artifacts, review items, and recommendations will need to be maintained Public website containing the GS1 Architecture and GS1 Architecture Principles, White Papers, etc. will need to be maintained
