PEPPOL

Italy for digital business

PEPPOL allows companies and public administrations to send and receive business documents in standard format over an open, global, and secure network.

What is PEPPOL?

PEPPOL allows fast, efficient, and borderless commercial exchanges. PEPPOL document specifications encompass global business processes by standardizing the way information is structured and exchanged. In addition to the standard formats and to a secure network, PEPPOL provides the governance to make it work, through binding agreements that guarantee the compliance of the parties involved.
