D. BUSINESS CASE/REASON FOR CHANGE:
Manufacturers sometimes create variants of a product that do not require a new product ID (e.g. holiday labeling of a product). However, the product variant has attributes that need to be divulged to consumers in order to accommodate online product purchases. To support these product variants in the product data alignment and order-to-cash business processes, new terminology is being implemented.
E. PROPOSED WORK:
Data Element 235
Add code V7, "Consumer Product Variant Identifier w/ expanded definition 'The identification for a particular Consumer Product Variant. An alphanumeric attribute of a GS1 Global Trade Item Number assigned to a retail consumer trade item variant for its lifetime. May be up to 20 alphanumeric characters. Used in conjunction with the product's Global Trade Item Number.' Code Source 41 "
