31 billion annual POS item transactions in France

2% had reading errors

23 seconds on average to resolve each error

20% of super/hypermarket shoppers had a

GS1
  • Conformance & Certification
  • Program
conformance and certification 1
CONFORMANCE AND CERTIFICATION (1)

Conformance:

Minimum requirements that must be met to declare a Bar Code or eCom message in conformance with GS1 specifications.

  • 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 and certification 2
CONFORMANCE AND CERTIFICATION (2)

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)

In other words…

"GS1 Certified" has global significance:

Certified once and accepted everywhere!

t h e c h a l l e n g e
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 company’s staff mandatory; and none inspect users’ equipment)
  • 5 endorse third parties to carry out verification under the third party’s brand
a s h a r e d v i s i o n
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).
