There is an increasing demand for data, which is why GS1 Data Source is updated (released) four times a year. For example, we make changes to validations, entry instructions, attributes or codes.
We publish what the changes will be well in advance so that you can prepare for them (publication date). From the production date the changes are effective and data must be recorded and received according to the rules and instructions in effect at that time.
The planning for the next releases:
|Release||Publication date||Production date|
|1 - 2023||19 December 2022||25 February 2023|
|2 - 2023||27 March 2023||20 May 2023|
