Medical Device Attribute Navigator Tool

Canadian healthcare providers are ready and waiting for your medical device product data.

GS1 Canada’s Healthcare Deployment Committee supports the adoption of Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) data for the medical device community.

Medical device manufacturers are encouraged to publish GDSN data specific to the healthcare providers they trade with.

Below, you will find guidance and files featuring the specific product attributes needed to support business processes by individual healthcare providers.

This page will be updated with health provider attribute lists as needed and the information needs may change over time.

If you do not see the healthcare provider you trade with below, please contact GS1 Canada at healthcare@gs1ca.org for further advice.
