The new Peppol Interoperability Framework is now complete and applies since 1 July 2022.

In this space you will find the latest versions of all documents related to the Peppol Governance Framework.

A. Background

The agreement revision process originated from the new Statutes approved by GA10 in 2018 and went through a number of phases. As final phase the Agreements Revision Task Force was established:

  1. The Agreements Revision Task Force (ARTF) was established in December 2020 with a mandate by the Managing Committee to produce a new set of deliverables - Agreements, Internal Regulations and Operational Procedures.

  2. The documents produced by the ARTF were subject to an open review during May-June 2021 and final versions were made available in September 2021.

  3. The new Agreements were approved in October 2021 and Internal Regulations in November 2021. Operational Procedures and other supporting documents were approved in February 2022.

  4. Revised versions of the Peppol Agreements and Internal Regulations were approved in June 2022.

Below you can find links to all documents contained in the Peppol Interoperability Framework.
