GS1 GLN for EAC certification

You want to export your products to Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia or Kyrgyzstan? Then you need an EAC certification for your products. This confirms the conformity of your products and goods with the standards and requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). Compliance with the applicable quality requirements is documented in the form of the EAC certificate or the EAC declaration.

As of January 1, 2021, new rules for registration of EAC declarations apply. According to the decree of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, the submission of a Global Location Number (GLN for short) is now mandatory as per the current status. A Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) can be provided if available. Currently, there is still a transition period until September 1, 2021, during which the GLN can be provided voluntarily. All EAC certificates / declarations issued after September 1, 2021 will then require a GLN.

You can obtain the GLN for your EAC certification from GS1 Germany. The global GS1 organization is the only recognized provider of GLNs and GTINs worldwide.

GLN & GTIN - what is that anyway?

The Global Location Number (GLN for short) can be used to uniquely identify companies and parts of companies, such as production sites or warehouses. The GLN consists of 13 digits and is the key to the company information stored in databases.

The Global Trade Item Number (GTIN for short), on the other hand, can be used to identify every article, every product or every product variant worldwide without overlaps. It is used wherever products are automatically registered. In retail, for example, the GTIN is made legible at the checkout via the barcode on the product.

The entry of your GLN in GEPIR confirms its authenticity

GEPIR is a global GS1 database in which companies and their locations can be found via the respective GLN. This makes it possible to determine whether you are the actual owner of the GLN named in the certificate. Your GLN is active in GEPIR as long as you are a GS1 customer.

The GLN in the EAC certification process

The GLN is part of your application for the EAC certification process. Once you have received your GLN from GS1 Germany, please return it to your certification body or certification service provider.
