Licenses do not expire. You can regard the payment as a one-time download fee that also represents a contribution to further developing the standard. The price of a license starts at €700 for companies with fewer than 50 employers.
The Concordance License is based on annual payments, and includes all releases that have ever appeared. The yearly fee for companies with fewer than 50 employees is €440. A Concordance License generally becomes worthwhile by the time a second release is acquired.

eCl@ss is a standard, not a piece of software; thus, the association itself does not offer implementation services.
For this purpose, we recommend our authorized eCl@ss IT Service Providers. Contact one or more of our IT Service Providers, and they’ll provide you with an offer.
The cost of these services will depend on the depth of implementation – for example, on the existing master-data quality, the number and complexity of products, the number of language versions to be used, and the capabilities of your ERP system.
