What is PEPPOL?
PEPPOL stands for Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line. PEPPOL is an infrastructure or a network for exchange of electronic business documents relating to e-commerce and e-procurement primarily between the public sector and their suppliers.
PEPPOL was created in 2008 as an EU project by the European Commission with the aim to facilitate the development of e-commerce in Europe.
This far, PEPPOL has been adopted in Norway and Austria and is being introduced in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, France and Belgium.
