The term “product change “means and change or improvement during the life if a product, decided by the manufactory of the product. In the case described below, the assumption is made that the “new” product replaces the old one. Should the manufactory decided to create a variant (e.g. with different ingredients) in parallel with the standard, a separate unique number has to be allocate.

Minor product change or improvement does not require the allocation of a different GTIN. Example: label artwork design, minor product description change with content unchanged, minor ingredient change. When the product dimension, the packaging type, the product name or brand, or the product name brand, or the product name description, a separate unique number (GTIN) must be allocated.
