This important meeting serves firstly as an opportunity to learn more about GS1 and their potential role in working with our industry towards implementing a standarised coding system throughout the mining supply chain, as per Mining Charter 3. Such a system will impact on all in the supply chain, and ultimately provide opportunities for greater efficiency and market reach. It is the system recommended and supported by dti; GS1 is the official implementing agent for identification numbers based on the UNSPC system.

It is important that all participating in the supply chain understand the system, so that businesses are able to make input on its implementation. Some basic info below, and further resources can be found on our website: https://memsa.org.za/resources-2/standardisation-and-codes/

Secondly, a short MEMSA members’ meeting will be conducted at the end of the session. The intention is to reach agreement on some adjustments to our membership criteria and marketing, in order to bring further alignment with Mining Charter 3. Documentation to be circulated.
