What is Peppol?

Peppol (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) is an open business network which enables government organisations and private companies to exchange electronic documents over a European wide network. In the UK, the NHS is currently driving the adoption of Peppol. Across Europe, Peppol is now being used more widely for public sector e-procurement activities.

Peppol is a set of open and interoperable technical specifications across purchase-to-pay (P2P) business processes and consists of three parts:

  • Network – known as Peppol Transport Infrastructure
  • Legal framework – known as Peppol Transport Infrastructure Agreements
  • Document Specifications – known as PeppolBusiness Interoperability Specifications (BIS)

Standard Peppol documents are:

  • Catalogues
  • Orders
  • Despatch Advices
  • Invoices 

How does it work?

Peppol enables access to its network through accredited Service Providers. All Peppol Service Providers interoperate so that existing e-procurement and e-invoicing solutions become interconnected; only one connection to Peppol is ever required. A single addressing mechanism ensures that all traffic is routed to the correct organisation across multiple Access Points.
