GS1 Global Data Dictionary

Did you know the GS1 has a new Global Data Dictionary (GDD)? The old GDD will only be accessible until January 2013, so if you haven’t gotten acclimated to the new one, start now!

The GS1 GDD has specifications for Business Message Standards (BMS) and all of their components, in addition to the GS1 Glossary of Terms applicable to all GS1 standards.

BMS are composed of Business Information Entities that comprise classes of information and their attributes. These attributes have data types that contain code lists and now, code lists are applied directly to these attributes.
