General information

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, an example catalogue and technical requirements which you can download here:
