Temporary leniency scheme 100% Digital

Read below what this means exactly

Together with growers, agents, buyers and software suppliers, Royal FloraHolland is working extremely hard this year to have all direct transactions fully digital through Floriday by the end of 2020. Customers who are not yet ready to trade 100% Digital for direct transactions on 1 January 2021 can make use of a temporary leniency scheme until 31 March 2021 at the latest.

This temporary leniency scheme is aimed at growers, buyers and agents who are waiting for the link with their software package, or at parties that are already working 100% Digital, but the other party isn't yet. The application for this leniency period should be made through software suppliers.

What does this mean?

For growers, buyers and agents, this means the following from 1 January 2021:

  • Growers, buyers and agents, who are not yet able to make use of a working link between their software package and Floriday on 31 December 2020, will receive temporary leniency until 31 March 2021. Your software supplier will register this leniency and inform Royal FloraHolland of those eligible for it. Floriday then sends a confirmation of the leniency period. Until 31 March, it will therefore be possible to continue to use the Connect-EAB. View the flow chart to see if the temporary leniency scheme applies to you. After 1 April, rates for the use of the Connect-EAB will be higher.
  • All essential functions to process direct flows through Floriday are available. Growers, buyers and agents who will be working in the Floriday screens are urged to comply with 100% Digital by 31 December 2020.
  • Nothing will change for growers, buyers and agents who only trade and buy through the clock.

Temporary leniency scheme explained
Why is there a temporary leniency period?

Floriday has completed the development phase for 100% Digital in the third quarter. All
essential functions to process direct flows through Floriday are available on the platform and in the API link. This means that at present growers and buyers are already able to use these for their direct transactions. Most software suppliers are also engaged in rolling out the Floriday link to their growers and buyers. We are currently seeing that various software suppliers haven't had the API connection for very long and need more time to complete the rollout with their  customers. We want to avoid the situation where companies, in spite of their efforts, are no longer able to make use of settlement through our marketplace after 1 January. With just one month to go, not all growers and buyers have a working link between their software and Floriday. Growers and buyers who are still waiting for this can for this reason make use of a leniency period until 31 March 2021. After this date, rates for the use of the Connect EAB will be increased.

To which software suppliers does this apply?

This temporary leniency scheme covers all software suppliers currently in the process of
preparing and rolling out an API link to their customers. An overview of software suppliers and their status can be found below.

How will the temporary leniency scheme work?

Growers, agents and buyers, who are not yet able to make use of a link between their software package and Floriday on 31 December 2020, will be eligible for the leniency scheme until 31 March 2021. Your software supplier will register the leniency and inform Royal FloraHolland of those eligible for it. Until 31 March it will therefore be possible to continue to use the ConnectEAB.
