GS1 Switzerland Member ­- Your Key to Success

Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your processes with the GS1 system. Our standards help you to cooperate with suppliers, customers and organisations more easily and meet legal requirements. Become a member of GS1 Switzerland and enjoy a number of additional services.

GS1 stands for One Global System, One Global Solution and One Global Standard and is the leading international not-for-profit organisation for development and application of global standards. The GS1 System optimises logistics and supply chains. The standards provide a common language and enable consistent communication around the globe.

The GS1 system follows this basic principle: a globally unique identification number enables automatic data and goods processing. Transmission of addresses, item descriptions and other details is replaced by GS1 identifiers in electronic data communication. Using the ID number, the user gains access to information saved on the databases at the supplier, service provider and recipient companies.

More than 110 country organisations are connected to GS1 which has its headquarters in Brussels. GS1 Switzerland supports companies in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. More than 5,300 member companies use the GS1 system in Switzerland, while globally it serves more than one million companies. In addition to the introduction and development of the GS1 system, GS1 Switzerland’s services include the provision of process recommendations in the supply chain and demand management, training programmes and a variety of events.
