Publish your GLN Offering

After you license a GLN from GS1 US, you receive the 13-digit GLN in the "Welcome" e-mail from GS1 US.

You can notify your business and trading partners about this GLN immediately.

In addition, it’s recommended that you "publish" your GLN so your business and trading partners can search for - and locate - this GLN in GS1 US Data Hub, to facilitate correct location identification.

When you enter GS1 US Data Hub | Location for the first time, the Top Level GLN is "published" and your licensed GLN is in a “Draft” state. You can click the GLN and then the Publish GLN button to publish. For step-by-step instructions, view the Publish Your GLN Offering Quick Start Guide.

Or view the Publish Your GLN Offering instructional module in the GS1 US University Learning Management System (sign in is required).
