The label uses the GS1 128 format which is widely used within the supply chain by large retailers looking to have a consistent format for receiving and put away. This label is provided to the flooring industry for anyone looking for a standard shipping label.

Certification has been attempted multiple times in the fcB2B groups existence. In the past there wasn’t an independent entity to perform the certification. There also wasn’t a defined process for how certification happened.
