Over deze norm
The number of e-commerce web sites dedicated to retailing (non-food products) has been increasing exponentially in the last few years, backed up by huge investments from large retailers. The retailing area appears to be the distribution channel of the millenium. Main retailer groups in the UK, France, Belgium and Germany, have combined a strategic position/localisation in new growth-markets (South Europe, Eastern countries, South- America, etc.) with the launch of e-commerce market places in their own countries. In the e-commerce context, product classification is the basis to design electronic catalogues. A harmonised product classification will help buyers to easily find the products listed in these catalogues, to order and purchase them. It will help all the trading partners to create and maintain quality relationships. A standardised classification structure will help manufacturers to easily classify their products. The E-NOM framework will serve as a basic element to develop a global registry including all the different non-food products with a common description being accessible by all parties involved in the supply chain. It will serve the industry and retailers in their electronic business transactions and facilitate electronic procurement. It will ensure visibility to European niche products on the international scene. The internationalisation of the E-NOM standardised framework will be a key to a more open market and increase of competitiveness on the world stage.
