Performance Report: Global Standards Top Performers List

Authored on

The top supplier score list is intended to highlight our top-performing suppliers regarding the implementation of our global standards requirements, achieving a compliance score of 95% or higher in a given Phase (90% in the case of wholesalers/distributors).

Scope of Suppliers
Suppliers are scored if they supply items that are deemed in scope for the GS1 requirements meeting all the criteria below:

  • Pharmaceuticals, medical devices, laboratory reagents, and sterile kits
  • Items in those categories under long-term agreements
  • Items in those categories that we have ordered before


  •  Identify: Allocate and provide GTINs for all levels of the packaging hierarchy and GLNs for sold-from and manufacture-from location/entities
  •  Capture: Suppliers are expected to provide scannable photographs, proofs, or other evidence to validate labeling implementation as described in the Labeling and Barcode Requirements.
  •  Share: Publish and successfully synchronize master data through the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN)
