This resource includes background information on key concepts and guidance for adapting and operationalizing use of a compendium template for collecting product, item, and trade item master data hierarchies leveraging GS1 global standards and is intended to guide the development of standardized master product lists in support of pharmaceutical traceability.
This resource includes a template for collecting product, item, and trade item master data hierarchies leveraging GS1 global standards. It is not intended to be prescriptive, but rather to serve as a tool for structuring the collection of standardized master data, including the use of Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) where applicable. Implementers should view this template as a starting point to be tailored to their specific needs and country contexts. To support understanding of the template structure, an example is included an populated across all data levels.
