UCCnet

UCCnet is a standards organization that provides an Internet-based supply chain management (SCM) data registry service for e-commerce companies and companies that have an e-commerce component. A non-profit subsidiary of the Uniform Code Council (developers of the UPC code), UCCnet provides a global repository where enterprises can register item data and share standardized, synchronized supply chain information.

The lack of data synchronization has long been one of the major stumbling blocks hampering the adoption of e-commerce. According to UCCnet, as much as $50 billion dollars is wasted each year by companies dealing with inaccurate or outdated item information. The organization promotes industry-wide adoption of standards for data. A growing number of major companies, including Wal-Mart, Shaws, and Home Depot, are requiring their suppliers comply with UCCnet standards.
