GS1 US Data Hub Product Lifecycle User Guide

When you first create a new product in GS1 US Data Hub, the product is in the Draft status. When you save this product and assign a GTIN, it moves to the PreMarket status. You can then generate a "For Placement Only" (FPO) barcode for packaging design purposes. When you're ready to share this product with the marketplace, you can move the product to the In Use status. You can then generate a barcode that can be placed on products.
