Exchanging product data in the DIY, Garden & Pet sector

You’ve been asked to use the GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) to exchange product data. 

GDSN allows you as a supplier or a retailer to exchange accurate and up-to-date data across the globe with your business partners. The network enables you to synchronise product data and digital files (PDF, photos, MSDS, etc.), in a standardised manner. In a GS1 GDSN data pool, you’ll find data distributed by GS1 GDSN. 

A number of GS1 GDSN data pools 

A number of GS1 GDSN data pools are available worldwide. Your client has asked you to use one. It’s up to you to decide which you would like to use. We strongly recommend that companies use their GS1 organisation’s GS1 GDSN data pool. This allows members to benefit from extensive support, as well as specific training. Support is provided free of charge (included in membership). My Product Manager of GS1 Belgium & Luxembourg is one of the certified GS1 GDSN data pools.
