About GS1

GS1 barcodes and standards change the way business is done around the world.

What We Do

GS1 Namibia empowers digital evolutions by enabling businesses across industries in Namibia and over 115 countries to create online versions of inventory that is as persuasive as experiencing physical products in person, allowing for global and local partnerships to be formed.

GS1 Namibia exclusively issues unique barcodes (GTINS) to products, while overseeing the process for local retailers to be listed on the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN), which is an enriched data platform powered by Trusted Source, thereby connecting brands with buyers and people with products. Businesses, consumers, patients, partners, and regulators benefit from increased transparency and a seamless product experience that gives tangibility and traceability to the digital world of product data, ensuring each brand around the world in every industry speaks the same language, in a manner that is localised and interconnected.
