About Data Management Services - GS1 certified parties
Brandbank, efdrie and XXtract have been certified for the recording of suppliers’ data and the execution of checks for the Data Quality 2.0 programme. Suppliers should contact a certified party to agree on conditions and costs.
GS1 certified Data Management Services (DMS) may record data in GS1 Data Source on behalf of suppliers. You may select a DMS awarded with a GS1 quality mark and sign a contract with them for the recording of your product data. In this case having your product data checked is no longer required. This often saves time and money!
GS1 certified Data Management Services also perform checks on new and changed products. When you receive a call for data checks from GS1, contact the DMS of your choice to perform this. They will compare product information contained in GS1 Data Source with the data about and printed on the physical product. You should also coordinate with your Data Management Service what happens to your products after the checks, such as returning them or donate them to charity.
