How standards are created


GS1 Australia works with industry leaders and businesses to constantly improve and enhance our set of supply chain standards.

The creation of GS1 standards 

GS1 standards are user-generated. That is, they are created by industry for industry to improve supply chain efficiency – and they are continually evolving to meet the changing needs of business.

The process we use to create and maintain standards is called the Global Standards Management Process (GSMP).

Your organisation can get involved – either directly or with GS1 – in the creation and maintenance of all GS1 standards.
