Since the certification program began, there has been an increased necessity for enforcement of the font size for the Purchase Order printed in Zone E. The minimum font size is 20 pt for this field, and all suppliers are required to meet this minimum requirement. This information was communicated to certified suppliers on October 22, 2009, but some suppliers have still not corrected their label format. If you do need to correct this field, you do not need to re-certify your GS1-128 label for this simple modification.
It is your company's responsibility to maintain a quality assurance program, which will maintain the same level of print quality as the sample sent in for analysis. If your company makes any changes in hardware, software or label material, we do suggest you re-certify your label to ensure compliance. In addition, we encourage you to review Stein Mart label placement requirements and constantly monitor the Stein Mart Vendor Relations Portal.
