Peppol (Pan European Public Procurement OnLine) is an organisation responsible for developing an EU-wide infrastructure for consistent digital procurement processes. Peppol provides specifications for electronic business documents and enables access to an EU network infrastructure (eDelivery Network). Operators of Peppol Access Points for this network must be members of the Peppol organisation and must comply with strict security standards. Companies from Germany and Europe can submit e-invoices to the public administration directly via the Peppol Access Points. This is particularly useful for companies that tend to submit a lot of invoices to Federal Government and federal state institutions.
