Updates / Releases FMCG & Foodservice and validations rules

The data model and the associated validation rules, which together form the standardized product sheet, are changed 4 times a year. Such a change is called a release in the technical jargon.

During a release, product features (attributes) or values in code lists can be added, changed or removed.

The input instructions can also change, as a result of which the validation rules that check whether the product sheet is completed completely and correctly, are also adjusted.
