Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM)



Many of our members do not manufacture their products at their premises, but instead entrust this to Contract or Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) for their needs. OEM Manufacturers provide a service, in many cases as a one-stop solution, to many companies that either cannot or do not want to manage their own factory. As the contracted party, OEM manufacturers should encourage their clients to register with GS1 as a member, so that they can provide their own barcode numbers for their products, and have their product details safely backed up on a trusted database. If this is not possible, GS1 Malaysia encourages OEM manufacturers to enroll with GS1 Malaysia on their client’s behalf. As an added service, GS1 Malaysia will waive the registration fee for all new membership applications by OEM manufacturers who are existing GS1 Members.
