Data Quailty Check

Data Quality Checks are a set of procedures performed on product data in GDSN Connect to ensure that the data is accurate, complete, and meets the standards set by the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN). These checks are essential to maintaining data quality and consistency, and they help to ensure that trading partners can rely on the product data they receive from each other.

Data Quality Checks are displayed automatically in GDSN Connect, it's best practice to check for updates once a week. This helps to identify and correct any errors or inconsistencies in the product data, which can improve overall data quality and reduce the risk of supply chain disruptions or errors.
