In 2014, the Department of Health mandated that all NHS Trusts must adopt GS1 standards and all their suppliers must become GS1 compliant. 

The deadline for compliance is 2019/20.

If you are a solution provider to NHS Acute Trusts, you need to take action following the publication of the eProcurement Strategy.

What steps do you need to take now?

The strategy includes a mandate that means any service or product procured by an NHS Acute Trust must be compliant with GS1 standards. This means that any systems you provide must also become GS1-compliant. It is therefore important that you understand:

  • What measures are being introduced
  • What they mean to you and your systems and services
  • How GS1 standards need to be supported by your systems and services
