Books and Publishing

Books and Publishing

The onset of digital technology has changed the scope and nature of Australia’s book and publishing industry forever.

The traditional publishing and retail paradigm has been irrevocably changed by the digitisation of books and magazines, and the new ways in which people now absorb content.

In an open market, where it is free to ship to Australia, traditional book retailers are looking at new ways to attract and keep readers in store. Global discounting and import tax has also had a significant impact. GS1 Australia provides access to all industry members to the GS1 system plus provides a range of education and training services to the sector to assist where necessary.

Please note: if you need to use a SSCC, you will require a GS1 number. Contact us about this.
