9. What tolerance applies for a product’s dimensions?

GS1 global measurement rules contain measurement rules and tolerances for the measurement of consumer and non-consumer items.

To determine the measurement rules and tolerances applicable to a product, you must first determine if the product is a consumer item or not because measurement rules and tolerances differ depending on whether the product is sold to the consumer or not. Next, you should determine the type of package that the sample has. From these two parameters you can select the correct set of measurement rules.
