National Product Catalogue

GS1’s National Product Catalogue (NPC) is a single, secure platform to keep all your product information (data) up to date. Load product data once or make changes to existing products – your data is validated for accuracy by GS1 and then shared with all your trading partners.

How does the National Product Catalogue work?

Detailed product information is essential for creating a unique identity and selling point for your product, making your product recognisable across trading partners and, most importantly, by your customers. With the recent growth in online shopping, it’s even more imperative to have an accurate and up to date representation of your product (a ‘digital twin’) on your trading partners’ websites.

The NPC simplifies the management of product data - enter, validate, store, and maintain your product data all in one place. When your product information changes (e.g. pricing updates), just update this in NPC and it will automatically flow out to your trading partners. The NPC allows you to share structured master data that meets all of your trading partners’ requirements.
