International Database for Transport of Feed (IDTF) – Newsletter 3/2020
There have been several changes for the IDTF by the International Committee for Road Transport (GMP+ International, OVOCOM, QS, Qualimat, EFISC-GTP, AIC and AMA). The changes are now implemented in the IDTF. Please find here further information about the changes. At the request of the companies, products and their cleaning regime are entered in the IDTF as soon as these are agreed by the ICRT. The date on which the change was entered in the IDTF is indicated by the ‘publication date’. The date on which the cleaning regime becomes mandatory is indicated with ‘mandatory from’.
3. New IDTF website almost live
The International Database Transport (for) Feed (IDTF) was developed in 2008. The technology and structure used at that time was tailored to fit its special purpose. As the technology behind the database is now outdated the database needs an update.
Beside these technical issues, the results of the ICRT survey have showed that the user experience and the outdated look and feel of the IDTF website need to be improved as well.
Therefore, the ICRT has initiated the IDTF renewal project to create a new IDTF website. This is a joint project of all ICRT-members (GMP+ International, Qualimat Transport, Ovocom, QS, EFISC-GTP, AIC and AMA-Marketing). On the new IDTF website you will find all the familiar elements and functions, but in a whole new fresh and modern look and feel. Also, the website is more user friendly, especially when it comes to the search function. Last but not least, it will be sustainable, secured and futureproof, supported by brand new technology which is regularly updated.
Currently we are in the last phase of the user acceptance testing. After finalisation of the last testing phase we will plan the actual go live. Before the new website goes live though you will receive further information and an updated IDTF-user-manual.
