GLN Registry System in Production
By lunching the local GLN registry system for the Iranian users and members at GS1 Iran, the Iranian Food and Drug Organization (FDO) has made the Social Security Organization required to use these Identification Keys to identify its pharmaceutical members while making their payments.
This occurred after introducing the GS1 Identification Keys to the FDO. GS1 Iran has arranged many sessions with the Organization and thus configuring their needs, it provided a Web Service to provide requested services.
By visiting GS1 Iran’s website, the members entered their information and registered towards their memberships.
After completion of their membership financial requirements, they were issued a user-id/password. Entering these credentials at the membership portal, they were permitted to login and enter the required information related to their physical location to receive their GLNs.
The latter activity along with their payment deposits was verified by GS1 Iran which enabled them to receive their GLN codes.

GS1 Cloud was officially launched at GS1 Iran as a pilot projects after formation its workgroup.
GS1 Iran’s staff members involved in this workgroup studied its functional implementations, roadmap, and domestic situation. They also notified (contacted) the selected members and gathered product information from GS1 Iran’s internal database.
The loading schema which was projected and implemented at the early phase of test project consisted of following order: two single GTINs via the website, three GTINs by an Excel file, and about thirty GTINs using API all were loaded. The problem which GS1 Iran confronted was the left-to-right orientation and characteristic of displaying the Persian characters at GS1 Cloud system. This problem was resolved on the test server after contacting the GS1 Cloud team at the Global Office whom we extend our gratitude and appreciation for their assistance on this matter.
There were twelve thousands GTINs loaded in GS1 Cloud database as for the pilot stage following the setup of the IT infrastructure within the forty days of the workgroup formation.
GS1 Iran is prepared to load all GTINs codes once the left-to-right orientation of displaying the Persian characters was totally resolved at the Production Phase as well.
