GDSN Data Pool Certification
Programme
•
Provides assurance that each Certified Data Pool can provide for secure and
continuous synchronization of item data at the same time using standards and
message choreography that are conformant to GDSN Standards and Message
Choreographies
•
DPs much successfully demonstrate:
•
Initial DP Certification:
– Technical connectivity via AS2 Protocol
– Standards and Interoperability conformance (message orchestration)
•
Annual DP Audit
–
–
–
–
Technical Performance – Using current versions of certified AS2 products
Third Party Security Audit – Required every 2 years
Legal compliance – Adherence to DP Contracts (GRALA / TPA)
Implementation and Operational Performance adherence
• Re-certification for Major network releases to introduce new functionality or
material changes

EPC Certification / Accreditation
Programmes
3 Programmes:
1. GS1 EPCglobal Software Certification
• Conformance to GS1 EPCglobal standards – Software Application
conformance to EPCglobal Specifications within supply chain solutions (i.e.
Track and Trace Solutions, Pedigree Solutions)
2. GS1 EPCglobal Hardware Conformance & Interoperability
•
Certification of RFID Devices (Tags, Readers, Printers)
– Conformance Testing – Device conformance to the EPCglobal Specification
– Interoperability Testing – Ability of a RFID Tag to interoperate with a RFID
Reader or with a RFID Printer
•
© 2013 GS1
Provides supply chain End Users with confidence that RFID tags can be
deployed and fulfill a number of key performance criteria, such as a high read
rate and interoberability with RFID Readers & Printers

EPC Certification / Accreditation
Programmes, cont.
3. Accredited Test Centers (ATCs) Program
• ATC’s are ‘accredited’ on their capability to evaluate RFID
tagged unit performance testing in a variety of real-world
environments common within the supply chain (i.e. on conveyor
belts, at dock doors)
• Test Centers/test labs must:
–
Demonstrate their ability to execute performance testing on RFID
tagged units
– Have an established Quality Programme (ISO 17025 based)
– Demonstrate core technical competencies on RFID technology, EPC
Keys, tag placement & command operations, RFID Device operation
(RFID Reader, Printer, Spectrum Analyzer)

GS1 Source Certification Programme
• GS1 Source Certified Data Aggregators enable the
communication of ‘trusted’ brand-owner product data with
consumers in the digital, omni-channel world in a simple, efficient
and scalable way
• GS1 Source Certification focuses on basic and nutritional product
information
• GS1 Source Certification ensures that Data Aggregator
messaging is conformant to the GS1 Source standards and
Message Choreographies
