            Your essential guide for all manufacturers & suppliers
            PDC.za is the South African National Product Data Catalogue. We enable brand owners, manu-
            facturers, suppliers, agents, wholesalers and importers to publish static non competitive data,
            such as product descriptions, weights and dimensions. We also maintain existing product infor-
            mation on a central database, accessible by industry through subscription. Retailers use PDC to
            integrate the data internally for accessibility and trading efficiency by all partners.

11. Product Data Catalogue
              PRODUCT DATA FORM


The Product Data Form must be completed by all Suppliers / Manufacturers so as to provide standard product
information to the Major Retailing groups who wish to list their product, or amend listed products. This information
is also required in the PDC.za. This form only applies to Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).

Please note the following:
1) At this point in time, this form will only be used for fixed weight products.
2) All information covering existing packaging levels is to be considered mandatory.
3) If pallets are used they must be allocated a GTIN.
Following is a description of fields that may need explanation.

Supplier Details
Vendor Name: Name of source Manufacturer / Supplier.
Global Location No. (GLN): This is an GTIN-13 number used to identify the Corporate identity of the Vendor / Agent.
It is used for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and the PDC.za.

Within the following levels, certain fields are common and the same description applies.
GTIN: Only one Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is required. This GTIN would be either an GTIN-8, GTIN-13, GTIN-14, or GTIN-12
number. Note that the UPC-E numbers should be expanded to their UPC-A equivalent and reflected under GTIN-12. The six-digit
UPC-E number should also be reflected to provide a double check on accuracy.
Supplier Item Code: This is the Supplier’s internal code for the item.
Pack Mat.: Examples of Packing Material are Cardboard, Plastic, Glass etc.
Pack Type: Examples of Packing Type are Box, Bottle, Tube, Bag, Case etc. For PDC.za, choose a Pack Type from the standard
Pack Type list available.
Pack Qty.: The number of units of the previous packaging level contained within this packaging level. Consumer Unit Determine the
default front panel (promotional panel). If a product package has more than one possible front, the highest side is considered to be
the Default. Consult the General GS1 Specification if in doubt.
Height: The vertical dimension from base to top of pack.
Width: The horizontal dimension from left to right of the front panel (promotional panel). In the case of cylindrical containers, this
would reflect the diameter.
Depth: The horizontal dimension from front panel to rear panel. In the case of cylindrical containers, this dimension is the same as width.
Non-Consumer Unit: First determine the natural base or underside. (For pallets - if the contents do extend beyond the edges of the
pallet base, it will influence the dimensions of width and depth).
Height: The vertical dimension from natural base to top of pack. For pallets, this height includes the height of the pallet base.
Width: The shortest horizontal dimension of the natural base. In the case of cylindrical containers, this would reflect the diameter.
Depth: The longest horizontal dimension of the natural base. In the case of cylindrical containers, this dimension is the same as width.
Gross Weight: Gross weight in Kilograms to three decimal places.
Tare Weight: Weight of packaging in Kilograms to three decimal places at each level (excluding weight of packaging from all previous
packaging levels). For pallets this will be the weight of the pallet base.
Commercial (Invoice) Description: If the Packaging level is an Order or Invoice Unit, then the Commercial Description is the description
as it will appear on the Supplier’s Invoice. (A maximum of 35 characters).
