In 2005 we changed our name from EAN Sverige to GS1 Sweden as a result of the merger of the European EAN organisation and the North American UCC organisation.
GS1 Sweden is owned equally by the Grocery Manufacturers of Sweden (DLF) and the Swedish Grocery Retailers Association (SvDH), who were also those that founded EAN, GS1’s predecessor.
GS1 is governed by a “Management Board” where key persons from multinational companies, retailers, suppliers and GS1’s member organisations are represented. Members come from different companies around the world and from different sectors. GS1 Sweden is committed to following GS1’s global regulations.
