Website History

The UNICA website was developed in 1997 by Arie de Jong. It was passed to Dave Watterson in 2013. In 2019 it went to Eugy Van Gool. These pages from the Watterson era contain historical data. Links to outside websites may not work. Statements about policy and regulations may be invalid.
A few pages are in just one language, because that is how they appeared when published. For current news and information www.unica-web.one
