GS1 Healthcare recommendations on the use of GS1 standards to access digital content on medical products
December 18, 2023
This document provides recommendations to health authorities to enable globally interoperable and harmonised access to digital content related to medical products. It can also be used by the healthcare industry to support the definition of a strategy on access to digital content.
The focus is on the technical components of the ecosystem needed to access digital content by scanning a barcode. In addition, assessment of regulatory compliance and specific legal provisions are needed to frame the governance and usage of these technical components. These are essential but not covered in this document as they are not part of GS1’s scope of expertise.
