It was 40 years ago that we first introduced the barcode into Australia and today we enable more than 19,000 member companies, of all sizes, to become more efficient by implementing the GS1 system and we do that with the help of our Alliance Partner community.
The start of the year is a great time to review your activities with GS1 Australia and investigate how you can further work with us.
Your Alliance Partner contact
As your main Alliance Partner contact, my key focus is to manage and strengthen the relationships with all of our Alliance Partners.
Whilst based in Sydney, I am only a phone call or email away and I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
I will be travelling extensively throughout 2019 to meet you face to face and discuss first hand your plans and requirements.
Do you want to promote your webinars to our members?
Are you running informative webinars that would be of interest to our members? We've introduced a new way for you, our all Alliance Partner to promote your webinars to our members, via our industry newsletters.
Read the updated Media Kit for submission dates, specifications and Terms and Conditions.
Webinar promotion is another way in which you can use your yearly advertising allowance.
With GTIN non-reuse coming into effect from 1 January 2019, now is the time to update your SOPs with the following standard wording:
Once a GTIN has been allocated to a trade item, under no circumstances must it be transferred or reused for any other trade item.
The only exceptions are:
• If a GTIN has been assigned to a trade item, which was then never actually produced, the GTIN may be deleted from any catalogue immediately without first being marked as discontinued. In this exceptional case, the GTIN may be reused 12 months after deletion from the seller’s catalogue.
• Trade items that have been withdrawn from the market and are reintroduced may use the original GTIN if they are reintroduced without any modifications or changes that require a new GTIN as specified by the GTIN Management Standard.
