EMVO is making all On-Boarding Partners (OBP) aware that the end of June 2018 should be considered as the very last opportunity to On-board timely.
An On-boarding Partner is EMVO’s designation of a Marketing Authorisation Holder (MAH) who uploads serialized data.
EMVO would like to make all On-boarding Partners and future On-boarding Partners aware that the end of June 2018 should be considered as the very last opportunity to On-board timely. Any late on-boarding after that date may entail a risk to the company’s business.
The OBP has to take into account that information and expertise from various departments of its company are needed to complete the contractual and technical on-boarding on time. EMVO’s pledge is to ensure an effective level of service towards all OBPs and to allow sufficient time for a successful on-boarding. On the other hand, the OBP should be aware that the on-boarding process may take some time, beyond the control of EMVO
There are more than 2,000 OBPs in Europe, and EMVO is concerned that that many OBPs will initiate their connection to the EU Hub late. There are still too many OBPs who are not connected to the EU Hub, and that is why EMVO makes them aware that EMVO can’t guarantee those who initiate on-boarding after June 2018 that they will be on-boarded in time to upload serialized data before February 9th 2019.
