We have taken time to consider how we can help allow our members to trade better, through the adoption of the GS1 standards and are excited to support small businesses in our region by running a promotion on our single GTIN & 10 GTIN GCP (Global Company Prefix) for a limited time only. (October 2021 to January 2022)
We have reduced the once-off entry costs and also reduced the annual licence fee applicable when applying for GTINS to identify your products or locations.
This promotion also provides members with access to GS1 Activate, the portal where you can manage your business assigned GTIN information and generating a compliant barcode symbol.
