10 ©2007 GS1 10 GS1, 30 years leading towards the global vision CONFORMANCE AND CERTIFICATION (1) What does it mean in the context of Conformance to GS1 Standards? Adherance to a single set of global, uniformly applied GS1 conformance clauses and assessment methodologies An assessment for conformance performed by one GS1 MO is recognised and accepted by all of them Conformance: Minimum requirements that must be met to declare a Bar Code or eCom message in conformance with GS1 specifications.

11 ©2007 GS1 11 GS1, 30 years leading towards the global vision CONFORMANCE AND CERTIFICATION (2) In other words… "GS1 Certified" has global significance: Certified once and accepted everywhere! Certification: A formal process of testing that Bar Codes or eCom messages conform to GS1 specifications. What does it mean in the context of GS1 Certification? GS1 MOs and/or third parties provide this service on a voluntary basis GS1 Conformance & Certification allows for self-assessment by the brand owner, customer assessment by the buyer or by a designated 3rd party (GS1 MO or other)

12 ©2007 GS1 12 GS1, 30 years leading towards the global vision T H E C H A L L E N G E Out of 27 MOs surveyed in Europe (July 2006): 3 have retailer mandates for their bar code certification programmes 5 do not check the validity of the data contained in the bar code 9 do not check for truncation 13 do not check for symbol placement 6 accredit user companies to carry out their own bar code verification (3 follow ISO; 2 inspect management procedures; 4 make training of the user companys staff mandatory; and none inspect users equipment) 5 endorse third parties to carry out verification under the third partys brand

13 ©2007 GS1 13 GS1, 30 years leading towards the global vision A S H A R E D V I S I O N Bar code certification and accreditation services offered by MOs are harmonised to adhere to the Conformance Clauses as defined in the GS1 General Specifications. As a result, there is recognition in one country of the certificates issued in other countries. Companies trading in several countries meet identical GS1 conformance and certification requirements in each. Bar code certification is voluntary and allows for self- assessment (brand owner), customer assessment (retailer) or designated 3rd party assessment (MO or other).
