GS1 GLOBAL STANDARDS AND EPCGLOBAL AS A SOLUTION ENABLING TRACEABILITY OF GOODS IN SUPPLY NETWORK
Abstract: The process of ensuring the safety of goods delivered to the market is connected with monitoring and administrating of needed dates at every stage of supply chain and at the level of every supplier included in this chain. The problem started to be discussed more closely when the new legal food traceability requirements were introduced. Food sector companies were forced by these requirements to introduce the system of monitoring of origin and every movement of every item offered to clients (so called traceability system). This system is composed of special procedures and rules to monitor and gather all needed information about goods. The idea of traceability system is to be able to track every item of goods offered at every stage of supply chain, included every raw material used for production of this item as well as to transfer these information to next step of supply chain. Global standards used by GS1 system of monitoring, registration and flow of information are sufficient to meet above-mentioned requirements. The paper presents the GS1 and EPC global standards and possibilities to introduced them into FMCG companies. The case of implementing GS1 standards to trace food goods in whole supply chain is presented.
