EPCIS Sandpit

A secure platform to learn how to record, manage and exchange visibility event data using EPCIS standards, so you can cost-effectively share information across your supply chain.

What is the EPCIS Sandpit?

The EPCIS Sandpit is a service provided by GS1 Australia to help you pilot and discover the benefits of event based visibility and traceability using EPCIS standards.

GS1 experts work with you at every step of the way - to firstly map your supply chain, and then help you to configure the EPCIS Sandpit to give access to all relevant parties.

EPCIS enables trading partners to share information about the movement and status of physical objects as they travel through the supply chain - from business to business and ultimately to consumers. It answers important 'what, where, when and why' questions, helping to meet customer and regulatory demands for accurate, detailed supply chain visibility and product traceability information.

Developed to the latest EPCIS 1.1 standards, the EPCIS Sandpit includes:

  • An EPCIS database for storing event data
  • A user interface for event data capture and query
  • Web services for event data capture and query
