GS1 Standards in EPCISAn EPC, or Electronic Product Code, based on GTINs and SSCCs, provides a unique, serialised identifier for any kind of object. Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) is a standard for storing and sharing EPC-related information between trading partners.

EPCIS provides capabilities to improve efficiency, security and visibility in the global supply chain. These standards facilitate internal data capture as well as secure external sharing of information about the movement and status of goods in the physical world. Companies that handle physical goods, such as manufacturers, distributors, resellers or logistics providers, can benefit from EPCIS by cost-effectively sharing information with finer granularity of detail for better visibility and efficiency.
