What is Peppol?

OpenPeppol is a non-profit association established in 2012, 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 (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 also a certified Peppol Access Point, making it ideal for those ready to operate in international environments and with public procurement processes for government contracts.
