You must be correct. In fact, Bergger's recommended developing times for BRF 100 are different than those published by Forte for Fortepan 100. Clearly different films.

I last used BRF 100 at least five years ago (it is not often available in the USA). I suppose it's possible that Bergger originally had Forte manufacture this film only to switch to another producer.
In any case, you must be correct that in 2007 they are very different films.
