Country of Origin Food Labelling

GS1 Australia via the National Product Catalogue have provided the means by which publishers can share Country of Origin Labelling information with their trading partners. GS1’s National Product Catalogue customer support staff can provide you guidance on how to populate your required CoOL content into the National Product Catalogue.

GS1 Australia staff cannot provide specific guidance on which products require this information nor what specific logo is required for a specific product, we rely on the brand owner to know what information they need to convey, and from there we can advise how to populate this Country of Origin labelling data into the National Product Catalogue.

Healthcare suppliers - Data Quality Insights

The National Product Catalogue was implemented in healthcare to support the industry need for standardised, supplier managed data across the whole of the healthcare value chain to ensure accuracy and efficiency.

Based on the principles of 'data synchronisation', the National Product Catalogue in Healthcare enables the sharing and updating of quality standard data that is required to link physical products to clinical practice as well as supporting quality processes, data capture and analytics within health. 

The National Product Catalogue Data Quality Report is sent monthly.
