Support-Portal » Catalogue format – BMEcat 1.2 (XML)

General information

The BMEcat 1.2 is a standardised format (XML file) for exchanging product information and conditions. The BMEcat format was developed on the initiative of the Bundesverband Materialwirtschaft, Einkauf und Logistik e. V. (the German association for materials management, purchasing and logistics, BME).

The BMEcat 1.2 is the Mercateo catalogue format. In general, the catalogue must correspond to the specification for BMEcat 1.2.

We provide you with the BMEcat 1.2 specification and an example catalogue which you can download here:

If you need more detailed information on the BMEcat fields and technical requirements, please have a look at the article BMEcat elements – overview.
