The Yellow Supplement in the VLB
Since January 2011, the Yellow Supplement, in which the publishing firms announced price changes and removals of shop prices, has been integrated into the VLB. All price changes communicated to the Verzeichnis Lieferbarer Bücher (VLB) are adopted into the Yellow Supplement, with a corresponding handling time. Since June 2011, the VLB has been the price reference database for the German book trade and with a notification to the VLB the publishing firm fulfils the obligation to communicate the fixed shop prices and shop prices changes as well as removals.
