TheFSM platform is provisioned as a framework where the data exchange and semantic enrichment is provided as a common functionality. Supporting the everyday transactions as well as the data asset trading in food safety and certification requires the harmonisation of multidisciplinary data deriving from a number of heterogeneous data sources. Involved data are intended to be used on demand, in real time, when necessary for execution of customer queries and taking into account the access privileges (if required) of the initiating user. Most data sources are expected to be accessed as APIs providing REST interface over http protocol or as SparQL/GraphQL entry points. Nevertheless, below a list with the core data sources which affect the design of the architecture is presented.
