National Product Catalogue Certification Program

The National Product Catalogue Certification Program is designed to certify a product’s ability to meet the local National Product Catalogue supplier / data source requirements by all engaged industry sectors.

The Certification Program is conducted by GS1 Australia and is only available to GS1 Australia Alliance Partners who have an understanding of the components of the GS1 System which form the basis for data synchronisation.

National Product Catalogue Certification applies to National Product Catalogue only

It does not certify that the product is able to meet the requirements of any other GDSN Certified Data Pool or to meet the requirements of any trading partner using another GDSN Certified Data Pool.

GDSN Standards are standards that govern the interoperability between GDSN Certified Data Pools and between GDSN Certified Data Pools and the GS1 Global Registry. GDSN Standards do not govern how a GDSN Data Pool interacts with its users.

For example, GS1 XML is the format used to exchange data within the GDSN. However, a GDSN Certified Data Pool does not have to support GS1 XML as the format used to receive data from data sources or send data to data.recipients.

There are some optional components in GDSN that Certified Data Pools do not have to support in order to be certified.

For example, price attributes and non-core item attributes are all optional components of GDSN. Some non-core item attributes are developed by Certified Data Pools are only applicable to their local market.

National Product Catalogue Certification is designed to only certify a product’s ability to meet National Product Catalogue requirements. Users wanting to leverage GDSN functionality with customers or suppliers overseas are encouraged to contact GS1 Australia to discuss their specific requirements.
