Virtual Market Place (VMP)

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).)

All participants on version 0p7 per 1 January 2012
It was agreed that per 1 January 2012 all participants of the CC VMP community will use the CC VMP standard version 0p7. The Floricode Test Centre supports a number of test scenarios for the CC VMP standard 0.7. The summary 'members' will indicate which participants successfully passed the different test scenarios.

UPDATE: At 13 october 2018 a part of the participants of the CC VMP community agreed by manifest to implement version 1p0 per 1 January 2019. Read more....

Request for Changes (RFC)
Request for Changes (RFC) can be submitted via info@floricode.com. Applicants and participants are kept informed about the status and comments.

These RFC’s must be submitted to Marjo van der Sman. She will evaluate the request and will discuss a temporary solution (as described in the documentation). Other participants will be informed about temporary solutions.
