Global Location Number (GLN) licence fee

Licence for an EDI mailbox number

A GLN or Global Location Number is used to uniquely and unambiguously identify any type of location. This number is used in EDI message transactions to identify each trading partner's mailbox.  When signing up for EDI with a provider you will be asked to provide a GLN. A GLN can be licenced from GS1 Ireland for this purpose.

For new licences the annual rate will be charged pro-rata for the remaining months of the current calendar year to December. The pro-rata rate will be applied automatically during the online application process. All fees are quoted ex VAT.
