What is Peppol?

OpenPeppol is a non-profit association established in 2012 and co-funded by the European Community with the support of a consortium of 18 governmental bodies, which presides over the development of the Peppol network, a transnational eInvoicing and e-Procurement system.

The Peppol network, an acronym for Pan-European Public Procurement Online, is based on three fundamental pillars:

  • Business Interoperability Specifications (BIS): a set of shared technical rules and standards;
  • Transport Infrastructure Agreements (TIA): an open network architecture for document interchange;
  • Governance arrangements: a set of agreements establishing roles, responsibilities, and service levels between the parties.

Comply is a certified Peppol Access Point, making it ideal for those who operate in international environments and with public procurement processes for government contracts.
