As of January 1st, 2018, Martin & Servera will charge suppliers for submitting incorrect, or incomplete, mandatory data in the article data certificates (VCD).
VCDs should always be submitted to Martin & Servera when the Product Manager in charge has approved the registry of a new article.
Post registry, all changes made to an article, for example weight or number of units per package, are changes that require a new, updated VCD. Please note that it is mandatory to inform the Product Manager about the article changes prior submitting a new VCD. Furthermore, it is important to describe the changes made to the article in the section: Other information.
VCDs through Dabas
If your company is connected to Dabas, it is possible to generate the VCD and send it directly to Martin & Servera through the Dabas website: www.dabas.com.
VCDs if the company is not connected to Dabas
If your company is not connected to Dabas, the VCD must be filled in manually and sent as an attachment in an e-mail to: email@example.com. Choose the correct type of item (Food, Non-Food, Restaurant equipment) to see which fields are relevant to your product and thus, mandatory to fill in.
