  • Define industry needs through the Statement of Business Need (SBN).
  • Work closely with GSMP teams to ensure sufficient and ongoing industry support for GSMP managed standards & solutions development efforts.
  • Collaborate with other GS1 IUG’s to identify needs overlaps and avoid duplication of effort.

  • Work closely with GS1 Member Organisations (MO’s) to understand the needs of the members that they represent.
  • Work with industry leaders to maintain awareness of industry changes, strategies and developments.
  • Ensure maximum industry support for development efforts undertaken on the industry’s behalf in GS1 Global Office.


  • The Value Chain – starting at raw materials all the way through the process chain through to end user/consumer/shopper and including all End of Life (EOL) processes.
  • Channels – all relevant channels
  • Distribution Routes – all channels


  • Definition of retail industry business needs and priorities for GS1 global standards, global services and global solutions.
  • A published and maintained overall strategic plans (1 Year and 3 Year) for retail industry work within GS1 Global Office

RVC IUG Group Structure

RVC IUG Co-Chairs formally in place since June 14th

We are still seeking a full time Retail Industry Director

Other existing Retail related initiatives will fall into one of these BNG's

Leadership Team composition not yet decided but likely to include BNG Co-Chairs. LT will be led by IUG Co-Chairs

BNG's need to elect co-chairs and define their roadmaps

Existing CE IUG will integrate into RVC IUG

RVC IUG Group Structure Notes

Leadership Team- all activities to do with:

  • Planning, setting strategies, tracking overall progress, RVC IUG Roadmap
  • Assessing incoming work requests
  • Connecting to industry, marketing what we do, recruiting new members, publicity, media etc.
  • Coordination across BNG's
  • Implementation - see next point

Implementation - anything to do with the actual implementation and/or support of our standards, services, solutions, guidelines. Includes all general activities to do with business processes

Packaging - all activities concerned with packaging at all stages from raw materials through to end user and reverse logistics. Includes standards for exchange of packaging data and requirements between the packaging industry and manufacturers/retailers

FoodChain - everything to do with growing, processing, transporting, storing, labelling, retailing, providing and consuming fresh food. Includes safety, traceability, recall, cold chain and all food outlets such as commercial caterers and restaurants

MobileCommerce - all activities related to the use of mobile technology in the Retail Value Chain. Includes, but not limited to, electronic coupons, retrieving item information etc.

Security - everything related to the safe transportation, storage, provision and sale of items through the Retail Value Chain. Includes EAS

SupplyChain - everything from raw material to manufacturing to delivery at retailer or point of consumption/use. Includes focus on inventory management and Returns/EOL processing

ConsumerElectronics - special focus on all electronics from USB stick to large white and brown goods, i.e. any electronics used by a consumer!

The Leadership Team - is a permanent group covering all parts of the RVC.

Data needs may be raised in the group but would then normally be passed over to the GDSN IUG

All other groups listed would effectively be BNG’s (Business Needs Groups in the new Industry Engagement environment) and would exist only as long as there was ongoing work for them.
