The eMail address of the registering person must be in the same domain as the company if the registering person is not already in our database. For example: the publisher has the URL www.company.com, so the registering person's eMail address must be something like email@example.com. If it is something like firstname.lastname@example.org, the registration will be rejected. In front of the @ the name can be anything, whatever the naming convention in your company is. There is a blacklist in our system of domains that will not be accepted.
If you are registering your company
for the first time with BELMA, you need to send an e-mail to
the webmaster with all the relevant information as listed below under
First time participants. This procedure is a safety measure. Once your information is in our database you will get notified that you now are able to register your learning materials.
When you register your materials please check for typos and use international characters and expressions. If the original title of your entry is in non-roman letters, please provide an English translation in the Field
Title in English. If you later notice there are typos, no problem, just send us an
eMail with the typos and their corrections and we will take care of that, since you will not be able to modify any entry once it has been submitted.
If you have registered an entry before, the auto fill function will take care of most of the general entries. If you see information about your company that needs to be updated, send an eMail to the webmaster, specifying what information on what page needs to be changed.
EEPG members: Even if you are taking part for the first time your company data will be filled in automatically, although the URL issue described above is to be observed too.
If you want to enter two or more sets of items the system will recognize this, and will charge you correctly.
