   Use separate registration form for each company. Registration forms can be downloaded from

   Fees paid to GS1 India are non-refundable except for interest-free refundable Security Deposit after cancellation/
    termination of subscription by GS1 India.

   Details of the various Financial Assistance Schemes like Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME),
    Office of the Development Commissioner (Handicrafts) under Ministry of Textiles, Spices Boards etc are available

   Please select product numbering capacity required (whether for one hundred, one thousand, ten thousand or one
    lakh product types/variants/SKU’s) correctly, keeping future requirements in perspective, since fresh registration
    (alongwith a set of complete documentation as detailed above with full requisite subscription fees as applicable at
    that juncture) has to be again undertaken with GS1 India if product numbering capacity gets exhausted. In such
    case, a new GS1 company prefix number would be allocated.

   The registration process requires two – three working days at GS1 India’s end, if all necessary documents /
    requisite fees are found to be in order.

Broad guidelines for generation of GS1 product codes

Every product variant / type / SKU that has to be identified uniquely by a manufacturer/retailer requires a unique GS1
product code. For example:

         a)   New product
         b)   New product variant
         c)   Change of name
         d)   Major product description change
         e)   Declared contents change
         f)   New packaging type
         g)   Declared changed weight or volume
         h)   Free gift attached

Like different pack sizes (e.g. 1kg, 500g or 200g), each such pack size represents a different product variant / SKU /
product type. If two items are combined to create a promotional pack, the new pack represents a new product variant /
type / SKU and hence requires a new GS1 product code for its unique identification. Products with different colors,
sizes / pack sizes, styles, quality etc are required to be considered as different product variant / SKUs).

It is suggested that product numbering capacity applied for should consider future product development requirements
(new product variants) in perspective.
