Your key to success

With your GS1 Switzerland membership, you have access to the GS1 system and can uniquely identify your products globally and make important product information available to all your business partners in a standardised form.

Anyone who wants to introduce a new product to the market must make preparations. This includes the identification of every product and every product variant, worldwide and without overlaps. The GS1 system offers reliable solutions, comprising identification keys, standardised data carriers and communication standards.

The cost of membership is calculated based on the annual worldwide sales of the company. There is an annual surcharge for the use of the GS1 system, which is calculated on the same basis.

Do you already have a GS1 Company Prefix (GCP) with which you can create GS1 identification numbers?


Info: GS1 Company Prefix (GCP)

The GS1 Company Prefix is the basis for the GS1 identification keys. These include, for example, the GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) for products, the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) for logistics units and the GLN (Global Location Number) for locations. They enable unique identification worldwide.

In Switzerland, you can only obtain the GS1 Company Prefix as a member of GS1 Switzerland. You can find your GCP in the confirmation mail or with the help of "Verified by GS1".
