Last Modified: 05/02/2024
Description:

Identifies whether the trade item is to be taken possession of, or to be consumed or used by an end user or both, as determined by the manufacturer.

The end user could be, but is not limited to, a consumer as in items sold at retail, or a patient/clinician/technician in a healthcare setting, or an operator for foodservice such as restaurants, airlines, cafeterias, etc.

Example:

GS1 Potato Crisp 50g true
GS1 Potato Crisp 50g x 12 false

For multiple Consumer Units, the Retailer sells the cereal by both the box and the pack. As such, for both the box and pack items, the correct value for this attribute would be true for Yes.
GS1 Cereal 50g true
GS1 Cereal 50g x 5 true (this unit is available to the Consumer)

Useful Tips:
  • There can be multiple consumer units in an item hierarchy
