The PEPPOL network

PEPPOL is the acronym for Pan European Public Procurement Online. It is an electronic communication system designed to facilitate public procurement between companies and administrations, regardless of their location or the internal or accounting systems used. It is a common and interoperable standard, essential for the development of cross-border e-procurement.

The use of the PEPPOL network is used increasingly in both the public and private spheres as an accessible, interoperable model through which any company can participate in cross-border public procurement processes.

Authenticity and integrity of your invoices in Europe

The European eIDAS regulation (Regulation 910/2014) establishes a legal framework for electronic identification mechanisms.

Thanks to EDICOM's certification as a qualified trust service provider, we provide electronic transactions with trust mechanisms that guarantee authenticity and integrity:

Recognized electronic signature, long-term e-storage with legal value, electronic chronological validation.
