Dear All,

GS1 has been working on a best practices document for embedding structured data about  parties, products and product offerings within web pages as well as a draft web vocabulary. GS1 is an international not-for-profit association with Member Organisations in over 100 countries. GS1 is dedicated to the design and implementation of global standards and solutions to improve the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains globally and across sectors.

We have completed an initial version of both the guideline and the vocabulary and they are available for review  and comment at the following link:


This link provides access to drafts of the GS1 Vocabulary Standard and an implementation guideline that shows how to use GS1 identification keys (e.g. GTIN) and GS1 defined properties to add structured data.  The web vocabulary focuses on properties for food and beverage products in support of EU 1169 as well as apparel and footwear.

We appreciate any feedback.

Please note, I have made the DWBP group aware of these efforts as well since the guidelines work is complimentary with their efforts.

Best Regards
