Providers

Procedures for providers (data, knowledge rules, tools and services) are still under development, but we do welcome enquiries (secretariat@quisper.eu).

Most food, nutrition or health-related web-service can be made available to users via Quisper®.
If you would like to connect to Quisper, click here for QSP provider API guidelines (PDF version 5, 01.10.2018).

Providers should read the QSP provider API guidelines (version 5, 01.10.2018), which explain:

  • Structure
  • Documentation
  • Security
  • Performance

Quisper® provides access to APIs from different providers (data, knowledge, tools or services). To facilitate access by users, providers should follow the guidelines provided. Ideally, multiple webservices should be harmonised for structure (syntactic) and content (semantic). Quisper will not seek semantic harmonisation.

Key words, such as "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in these guidelines are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.

Request | New webservice

If a you want to connect a food, nutrition or health resource (data, knowledge, tools or service) to Quisper®, click here to complete the new webservice request form. For an example of a completed form, click here. For an example of a technical description, click here.

What happens next? The new webservice form will be reviewed by Quisper and our representative will contact you to discuss either:

  1. Why we are not able to connect the service (e.g. does not comply with our policies or technical issues)
  2. Progressing the request and linking your resource to Quisper

Once your resource has been connected, the description will be added Quisper, informing potential users.
