UNSPSC replacing GSIN codes

Coming in 2017, the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) will replace GSIN codes. All of the GSIN codes will be mapped to UNSPSC. This mapping between the GSIN and UNSPSC will be shared by PWGSC on Buyandsell.gc.ca as open data.

Over the course of the transition to UNSPSC, Tenders, Standing Offers and Supply Arrangements, and Contract History, will be connected using UNSPSC.

There is no immediate impact to businesses or government buyers. As the transition to UNSPSC is implemented, PWGSC will inform businesses and government buyers of changes that may impact them. Visit the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) web page to learn more.
