The Global GS1 Electronic Party Information Registry
The Global GS1 Electronic Party Information Register (GEPIR) is a distributed database that contains contact particulars of over one million member companies in over 100 countries.
You can query for the above by log in to the GEPIR service of GS1 organisations worldwide. For this, you can use two options: (a) log in to www.gepir.org
and search for member company contact details using GS1 product code numbers (GTIN’s – global trade identification numbers) on retailed products or GLN’s (global location numbers) or SSCC’s (serial shipping container codes) or by company name (b) log in to local GS1 organisation website through www.gepir.org and search under
“local GS1 offices”
