New Look Order Notification Emails to Support Scan4Safety

Tuesday 8 May 2018

As part of our ongoing commitment to the Department of Health's Scan4Safety initiative, our system generated ordering notification emails now include Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) and Global Location Numbers (GLNs).

Please note:

  • GTIN codes will only be visible where suppliers have provided us with their GTIN data.
  • GLN codes will only be visible against your requisition points where these have been provided by your trust.

These changes will support our customers and suppliers to trade using common global coding standards (GS1) and Pan-European Public Procurement Online (PEPPOL) message standards.

We have also taken the opportunity to refresh the look of these emails so they reflect the look of our website and are in keeping with our brand.

Below are some examples of the new emails; please click on the links below to view:
