I was just wondering how far people have got with GS1 (and PEPPOL) compliance activities in the UK as suppliers to the NHS (as per the published supplier timeline). We have joined GS1 UK and have had 10,000 GTIN numbers allocated to us. Also now have access to NHS Supplier Wokspace. I’ve created a spreadsheet similar to Smith & Nephews (see http://www.smith-nephew.com/udi-home/provider--information-/) to generate barcodes. Also bought new label software and barcode verifiers. We are currently creating (and verifying) new labels for our products (with 2D barcodes) and packaging (1D barcodes) – but the whole overall GS1 and PEPPOL thing is a bit overwhelming.
