Why have fees increased?
To continue to deliver support services to our 20,000 plus members in Australia, including, we need to continue to provide appropriate funding across our operational activities. This funding comes from membership and services fees. As inflation and the cost of doing business rises, we must adjust our membership and services fees to ensure appropriate funding across our operational areas to maintain our service levels.
Why has GS1 increased fees as a Not-for-Profit?
As a Not-for-Profit organisation GS1 Australia does not seek to make a profit from operational activities, however, we still need to cover the costs of running the organisation and delivering services to our members. Membership and Services fees are the only sources of revenue to fund our operational activities.
I am only using a few numbers, why are the fees so high?
Membership is based on a licencing model. This model is based on the numbers reserved and made available for a members use and not the numbers used or in use. GS1 continues to evolve this model to right size the numbers reserved to match this to our members' needs.
GS1 Australia’s membership model is also a turnover based model in a bid to be more equitable to our customer base.
