Guidelines for transmission of results from value tests of agricultural crops on electronic carrier

The here available "guidelines of the Bundessortenamt for the transmission of the results from agricultural VCU-tests on data media" represent an addition of the "guidelines for the execution of agricultural VCU-tests" and replace the version of 2000.

Partner for the technical questions of the data communication is in the Bundessortenamt section 111 "Biostatistics, Information Processing and Communications Engineering".

The correct data communication is a component of the reporting for the VCU-tests. Basis for form and contents of the inspection results stored on data media are the valid forms for report. Apart from the transmission in form of the forms (and/or as ASCII data) the data can be conveyed also as PIAF export files. Also for these data the valid forms for report are the contentwise basis. Forms and/or of them on data medium stored contents are considered as source vouchers and possess the legal characteristic of official documents.

Here you can download a German version of the "guidelines of the Bundessortenamt for the transmission of the results from agricultural VCU-tests on data media" as pdf file.
