GS1 GTIN partner

If you’re planning on selling products in retail stores, shipping via a partner or selling online there are many benefits in having a unique Global Trade Item Number (GTIN).


A GTIN makes everything run more smoothly throughout your supply chain and at point of sale – and GS1 UK is the only recognised provider where you can get one.

Successful brands

built on trust

To build a successful brand and business, your customers need to trust you. GS1 barcodes, data services and support provide you with the tools to deliver on your promises. Larger retailers will insist on using a barcode registered to you, and adding or changing a GTIN later can be both time consuming and costly.
