Expert Group Standards

Experts from trade and industry (consumer goods) meet in the Standards Expert Group to find solutions to update-related tasks in connection with the use of GS1 standards for the supply chain of the consumer goods industry, including PoS. If necessary, corresponding recommendations for Switzerland are developed. The expert group also discusses the global amendments in the GSMP process to the AIDC and EDI standards, insofar as these are relevant for Switzerland and the consumer goods industry. Decisions on national amendments to the EDI and AIDC are made within the framework of this expert group.
