Product Data

Data is King. Consumers need to have confidence and trust in knowing that the on-shelf physical product matches its on-line ‘digital twin’ exactly. That’s where GS1’s Product Data standards and product catalogue services comes in.

The National Product Catalogue (NPC)


The NPC connects suppliers with trading partners electronically to share, standardised, verified product and price data in one, secure system. The NPC enables product information to be exchanged between business partners automatically to guarantee that retailers and consumers are getting up-to-date, accurate information on-shelf and online.
