  • 1. NR 7-04 Thursday 5th August 2004 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) Begins Operation Major Milestones Achieved in Worldwide Effort to Improve Data Accuracy and Facilitate Efficient Collaborative Commerce Brussels, Belgium/Lawrenceville, NJ, —EAN International and the Uniform Code Council, Inc., (UCC), leaders in facilitating efficient international business, today announced the launch of the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN). The GDSN, conceived and supported by EAN International, the UCC, and leading companies and industry groups worldwide, is a global, Internet-based initiative that will enable trading partners to quickly and efficiently exchange supply chain data that is accurate, up- to-date, and compliant with universally supported EAN.UCC System standards. The GDSN was developed in partnership with the global business community to address the high costs associated with inaccurate data. The GDSN vision, conceived by the Global Commerce Initiative (GCI), is based on a centralised, global registry, that connects to numerous data pools around the world, enabling data to be standardised and synchronised for trading partners on a near real-time basis. In order to ensure the GDSN meets the business needs of the user community, EAN International and the UCC established a GDSN Oversight Committee as the foundation of its governance structure. The Oversight Committee, which currently includes seventeen senior executives from manufacturing, retailing, and EAN Member Organisations, has been appointed to govern the GDSN, promote global adoption and address strategic issues related to the rollout of the GDSN.

  • 2. 2/- Throughout 2004, EAN International, the UCC, and global participants have been working together to prove the viability of the network concept through rigorous testing and communication pilot trials. With this phase completed, the GDSN has achieved several important milestones that will bring data registration and synchronisation services to the next level of global interoperability and availability. On 1st August, 2004 the global registry functionality required for the creation of a global network was put into production under the jurisdiction of EAN International. This registry, to be called the GS1 Global Registry™ (in anticipation of the EAN/UCC 1st January, 2005 name change to “GS1”), will be operated as a distinct and separate neutral entity by EAN International. The GS1 Global Registry will serve as a global gateway for companies to locate source (manufacturer) or recipient (retailer) data pools, which contain item and party information. In addition to the establishment of the registry, a GDSN data pool to data pool communication test was conducted to ensure that participating data pools were interoperable with other data pools and the GS1 Global Registry. The data pool approval process, supervised by the GDSN Oversight Committee, was conducted by the Drummond Group Inc. (DGI), a leading interoperability and conformance testing company. For a data pool to be successful in the communication test round, they had to demonstrate interoperability with at least two other data pools and the GS1 Global Registry. The initial group of companies that has successfully completed the communication pilot include: bTrade, Inc., CABASnet, Global eXchange Services (GXS), WorldWide Retail Exchange (WWRE), Sterling Commerce, Transora, and UCCnet. Complete interoperability certification testing will be required, starting in October 2004, to enable further expansion of the global network. More follows………
  • 3. 3/- Commenting on the progress made on this phase of the GDSN launch, Miguel Lopera, the Chief Executive Officer of EAN International and the Uniform Code Council said, “The costs of inaccurate data are enormous, and this problem impacts companies of every size and industry. We will continue to work with the business community to enhance and expand the Global Data Synchronisation Network. This is a major step in our global effort to make end-to-end supply chain data accuracy a reality. It is an initiative that will produce tremendous value and benefits to manufacturers, retailers, and consumers around the world.” Trading partners wishing to participate in the GDSN may get further information by contacting the EAN Member Organisation (MO) in the country in which the company is headquartered (details of MO locations are to be found on the home page of the EAN International website: ). -ENDS- For more information Contact: Graham Avory, EAN International, Brussels’ Belgium +32 2 227 10 20, e-mail: Jack Grasso, Uniform Code Council, Inc., Lawrenceville, NJ, USA: 609.620.4545, e-mail:
