Note that Verification Reports created by GS1 Australia are valid in New Zealand.


Then login to MyGS1 and follow the instructions below:

Step 3: Select the trading partner you require or Prepare me for anyone.  

Note: If you choose a Foodstuffs company or Prepare me for anyone, the Foodstuffs requirement for photographing the marketing face(s) and 3D will be triggered.   This means that where there is another face on the product that might also be used for marketing this will be photographed also, incurring the cost of another shot.
