The B2B2C technical working group has around 50 people on the mailing list with a core group of around 15 representatives working on assigned subjects. The most visible result of the group’s work are GDSN implementation guidelines that are published on GS1 in Europe website. These guidelines most often address GDSN implementation aspects of European regulations and directives that have impact on master data exchange in FMCG and other sectors where GDSN is actively used by industry.
Published guidelines from the B2B2C group can be found below.
Not all the work results in publishing a guideline. The group also develops and maintains harmonised European code lists for several attributes with so called local code lists. These European code lists are available for download from https://www.gs1.org/standards/gdsn/3-x under section “European Union”. Group also creates internal recommendations directly for GS1 member organisations which are then communicated and implemented through local working groups if necessary. Lastly, the group supports global GDSN standards development work in GMD SMG – the GS1 Global Master Data Standards Maintenance Group with answers to questions related to GDSN implementation in Europe.
