To accomodate new requirements, new regulations and new business processes that have come up in the last decade since the original Healthcare Global Trade Item Number® (GTIN®) Allocation Rules were developed, the Healthcare GTIN® Allocation Rules have now been adjusted.
In June 2020 the rules were updated, ratified and Release 10.0 was published. The revisions enable companies to better understand the cases where healthcare specific rules apply and make the rules easier to use.
