GS1 standards have been powering progress for more than 50 years, transforming and simplifying increasingly complex supply chains, increasing business efficiencies and even saving lives. All by simply helping to manage data more effectively.

Whether online, in store, or in a hospital, the common language of GS1 standards is helping our community of thousands of organisations to uniquely identify, describe and track people, products and places everywhere. Creating greater trust in data for everyone.

A ruthless focus on our members and their needs – across sectors – mean that our support is recognised as a vital part of UAE businesses.
