Global Substance Identifier project

Problem statement:

To have consistent generation of global PhPID, a single controlled Global Substance ID is needed. 

Project description: 

The goal of this Project is to globally harmonize and define capture of standardized information for global Substance identification and hereby ensure consistent PhPID construction through/by: 

  • Identifying the core information set via the ISO TC215 WG6 signature field sub-group. 
  • Adopting a Global substance ID, i.e., GSID 
  • Establishing a global maintenance organization.¬†
  • Establishing business rules regarding which standardized substance data (GSID) to use in the PhPID generation. 
  • Establishing a mechanism for the use of confidential data in GSID assignment.
