The VMP standard, the Cross Community Virtual Marketplace, is the outcome of close collaboration between five communities within the ornamental horticulture industry. The term ‘Cross Community’ emphasizes the need of interoperability between different VMP platforms. The aim of sharing common business rules and common implementation conventions is to bring interoperability to a higher level. Most of the CC VMP business rules in this document are derived from the FloraHolland VMP implementation on FloraMondo due to their generic character.
Agreements on management and maintenance
On 16 February and 26 April 2012 the Working Group Standards (WGS) and the CC VMP community accepted a proposal for the management and maintenance of the CC VMP standard. Agreements are listed in this report.
(NB: On July 7, 2016 documents listed are replaced by the note Process community VMP (ENG) / Werkwijze community VMP (NL).)
