What is GDSN?

A common language for sharing trusted and quality product content.

When product information is accessible and accurate, your business wins

The Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) is the world’s largest product data network. GDSN makes it possible for any company, in any market, to share high-quality product information seamlessly. Because companies of all sizes need the same thing—timely and reliable product information—to ultimately benefit consumers and patients.

With GDSN, high quality product content is uploaded, maintained and shared automatically, ensuring trading partners have immediate access to the most current and complete information needed to exchange products on both local and global markets.

Any company that needs to send or receive product information can take advantage of GDSN by subscribing to a data pool.

Your data pool will enable you to set up your product content and synchronise it with all your trading partners, so you can plug in reliable data for all markets at one time.

GDSN realises powerful benefits for your business:

  • Share real-time product content with all trading partners simultaneously
  • Decrease data management time and costs
  • Eliminate manual processes and reduce errors, generating quality
  • Bring new products to market quickly and easily
  • Enable brand transparency to consumers and patients
