GS1 Switzerland Member - Your Key to SuccessIncrease the efficiency and effectiveness of your processes with the GS1 system. Our standards help you to cooperate with suppliers, customers and organisations more easily and meet legal requirements. Become a member of GS1 Switzerland and enjoy a number of additional services.
GS1 stands for One Global System, One Global Solution and One Global Standard and is the leading international not-for-profit organisation for development and application of global standards. The GS1 System optimises logistics and supply chains. The standards provide a common language and enable consistent communication around the globe.
The GS1 system follows this basic principle: a globally unique identification number enables automatic data and goods processing. Transmission of addresses, item descriptions and other details is replaced by GS1 identifiers in electronic data communication. Using the ID number, the user gains access to information saved on the databases at the supplier, service provider and recipient companies.
More than 110 country organisations are connected to GS1 which has its headquarters in Brussels. GS1 Switzerland supports companies in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. More than 5,300 member companies use the GS1 system in Switzerland, while globally it serves more than one million companies. In addition to the introduction and development of the GS1 system, GS1 Switzerland’s services include the provision of process recommendations in the supply chain and demand management, training programmes and a variety of events.

GS1 Standards form the foundation for efficient supply chains and increase efficiency in goods, information and value flows. You can use them, for example, to give products, sites and logistics units a unique global identification. You can then record that information with standardised data carriers, such as GS1 barcodes or RFID tags and share them easily with your trading partners.
In the age of Industry 4.0, digitalisation brings production, logistics and sales closer and closer together. In the future, machines and product components will have to communicate with each other globally, independently, fluently and efficiently via computers. That creates vast amounts of data. The fact is, nothing works without standards. For more than 40 years, the global GS1 community has been successfully developing principles and solutions for standardised economic processes. A common language is important when it comes to applying them.
GS1 – The Global Language of Business
This common language was first used successfully in the consumer goods industry. But GS1 Standards are not limited to consumer goods: GS1 is sector neutral and not bound to the interests of one single industry. The GS1 system is, therefore, designed in such a way that it can be used in any sector of the economy and in any industry. It applies in particular to the transport and logistics sectors, technical industries or even healthcare. Changes are decided together with the users and introduced in such a way that there is no negative impact on pre-existing implementations.
