Internal Locations Distribution

Internal Locations Distribution is an optional premium feature of GS1 Canada’s Recall solution that enables multi-site organizations, such as retail chain stores or hospital pharmacies, to re-distribute recall notices to their internal locations.

This ensures your internal locations promptly receive recall notifications, which enables them to take the necessary steps without delay.

Quicker notifications mean that potentially unsafe products are removed from the supply chain faster. This reduces risk to your brand reputation and most importantly, risk to consumers and patients.



  • Significantly reduce the time to notify each of your internal locations and prevent potential risks associated with processing a recalled product
  • Provides the option of redistributing the recall notification to select internal locations, or all locations
  • Visibility to recall notifications that have been read and received by your locations
  • Recall receivers can track quantities of found and removed products by their internal locations
