Since the 25th of April 2022, bol.com has required brands to send an image of the CE marking of each product in their product data. Brands can now also deliver the CE marking to Icecat and upload it to the Icecat platform. Icecat will syndicate the content to the bol.com version 7 API.
The CE mark indicates that a product meets safety, health, and environmental requirements, and is even mandatory for most products marketed in the European Union (EU), such as toys, electronics, and medical products. Bol.com requires each brand to provide a CE mark for their products to ensure reliable product information and compliance with relevant regulations.
The mark is a well-known symbol that must be affixed to a product or a data plate. Manufacturers are required to display the CE marking on the product itself, but if that is not technically feasible, they may display it on the product packaging or accompanying documentation.
The Icecat platform supports PDF file types. There are three ways to add the CE Marking:
ShortDescr: "CE Marking"
Type: "other digital assets"
If a brand already uses Icecat then the content can be added to the feed. Icecat will then syndicate the content to the bol.com marketplace. In case a brand does not comply with the CE regulations, bol.com will take the brand’s respective product offline.
Interested in syndicating product content to bol.com? Then please register here, or in case of any questions, please contact us directly via the website.
