Label data

Label data is the bits asserting whether a standard label applies to the product with a given barcode, or not. Because something either satisfies the audit regime under this label or not, it is a simple binary representation stating "yes it does" or "no it doesn't". If the actual written label on the product on the retail shelf has the label when the label data says it should not, or does not have it when the label data says it should, that is a spot audit and can be used to launch investigations of products or the audit regime of that label.

This is another good motive for Consumerium Services to exist, and yet another way to make it self-funding: to offer to the governance organizations supervising each mandatory label and standard label to use Consumerium checkers to determine whether the product is properly labelled or not.
