European Maintenance Group

Each year, the working groups on data excellence prioritise a few themes, which are worked on in detail throughout the year. One of the best examples is the Global Data Model, which started partly as a European effort to harmonise local data models for the European continent.

The (European) regional layer is now part of the GS1 Global Data Model standard and it is being governed by the European Maintenance Group.
