Global Location Number (GLN) Registered User

All e-business transactions in Singapore for Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) need to have a GLN for party identification. A GLN is a 13-digit non-significant reference number used in electronic communications to identify organisations and their physical locations. 

For distributors who are getting their goods from their suppliers already printed with EAN Barcode symbols, will still need a GLN for the purpose of company identification to conduct e-business transactions between their companies and the retail chains.
