Navigating the PEPPOL Network: Embracing Integration Standards for Efficiency

The EU defines PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line) as a standard using open protocols like OASIS ebXML and AS4. It ensures compatibility with various e-procurement systems. PEPPOL aims to establish a common framework for interoperable business and public authority electronic document exchanges, enhancing PEPPOL Integration Standards.

PEPPOL now operates as a secure, international network, enabling document exchanges between registered partners. European Public Sector entities primarily use it for invoice reception, adhering to EU countries’ legal requirements like in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. Over time, numerous public and private companies are embracing this standard for electronic business document exchanges.

The PEPPOL standard employs a 4-corner communication model. This approach means companies don’t exchange invoices directly but via their PEPPOL Access Points. For instance, Company A sends an invoice to its Access Point, which securely transports it to Company B’s Access Point. Finally, Company B’s Access Point delivers the invoice to Company B.

This entire process adheres to PEPPOL standards and service specifications, ensuring compliance and communication efficiency. While PEPPOL coexists with other eInvoice standards like Svefactura in Sweden or Nemhandel in the Netherlands, the expectation is their phase-out. This change anticipates all EU public authorities receiving PEPPOL invoices since April 2020.
