Identification data

Digitisation for construction product manufacturers: a plain language guide, published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2021 defines identification data as: ‘Information to identify the product and relate it back to specific information about that product, such as globally unique identifier (GUID) barcodes and other unique product identifiers. There can be identifiers that specify the exact type of product or the individual product itself – identifying where and when it was made for example.’
