Effective January 1, 2018, the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) introduces a completely revised scheme of database license fees for its members.
Starting January 1, 2018, there will be two license models available: a Standard version for 1-18 licenses, each costing 600 € per product per year, and a Premium version for product numbers exceeding 18 per year that costs 11,000 € flat. AEF chairman Peter van der Vlugt explains, “The new model is especially designed to provide a more feasible 'entry ticket' for smaller companies.” For this reason, the organization is lowering the fees for members who only have a limited number of products to be certified and uploaded to the AEF ISOBUS Database.
With the new scheme, AEF also offers newcomers the upload of their first certified product free of charge during the 6 months from July 1 to December 31, 2017. The organization expects that the new procedures will facilitate placing products in the AEF ISOBUS database and consequently add to its informational value for the farming community.
