European Maintenance Group

From the data excellence working groups, every year some topics are prioritised and worked on in detail throughout the year. One of the best examples of this is the Global Data Model, which partly started as a European effort in order to harmonise the local data models for the European continent.

The (European) regional layer is now part of the GS1 Global Data Model standard. The governanence of the European regional layer is done by the European Maintenance Group. Pleadse see the agenda below for the next meetings.
