About CEF eDelivery:

The CEF eDelivery building block helps public administrations and businesses (and indirectly citizens) to participate in eDelivery Messaging Infrastructures which facilitate organisation-to-organisation messaging by enabling their systems to interact with each other in a secure, reliable and trusted way. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Digital Programme, is currently promoting the adoption of common standards in the eDelivery Messaging Infrastructures in different policy domains (Business Registers, eJustice, eProcurement, etc.).

CEF eDelivery promotes the use of existing technical specifications and standards rather than trying to define new ones. Organisations adopting these technical specifications are free to select any software that conforms to them. In short, there are three alternative scenarios for Public Authorities and Business interested in deploying a CEF eDelivery Access Point. They can buy, build or reuse one.

About the CEF building blocks:

The CEF building blocks provide basic services which can be reused to enable more complex digital public services offered to citizens, businesses and public administration. They provide reusable tools and services helping to underpin the Digital Single Market, that aims to remove digital regulatory barriers, contributing as much as EUR 415 billion per year to the European economy. The CEF Digital Portal is the home of the CEF building blocks (eDeliveryeIDeInvoicingeSignature and eTranslation). It is the one-stop-shop for information about the building blocks. The portal provides access to tools, services and software that can be used in any European project to facilitate the delivery of digital public services across borders.

  1. Dear guys,

    regarding open question to Webinar "CEF eDelivery Live Webinar for the EPREL community", may be you could prepare official EU statement, if there is a must using an "eDelivery" certified (service/communication) provider solution .
    Why I'm asking ?
    I believe saw any document / presentation of eInvoicing building block describing "eDelivery" which told that only certified (AS4/ebXML) solutions are able to send data as AccessPoint, all others (non-certified AccessPoints) only able to receive... (sorry, didn't find source document last 10 minutes, given up....)
    We are going to use a "Seeburger" (Seeburger AG, Bretten - Germany) "AS4" communication module which is not yet certified neither "eDelivery" nor especially "EPREL" based, but it is scheduled by end of this year at Seeburger...

    Regards, Udo

  2. Dear Udo Steinkampf,

    Strictly speaking, there is not a MUST of using an eDelivery conformant AS4 solution.

    However, it is highly recommended that an AS4 solution participating to an eDelivery based network passes the eDelivery conformance testing service beforehand.

    This will reduce the potential interoperability issues between different solutions in a production environment.

    From our experience with other AS4 solutions that have passed the eDelivery conformance testing service, we can confirm that the process is valuable and worth the effort.

    Best regards,


  3. When will it be possible to have a testing environment in order to start testing the connection and call it to EPREL eDelivery?

    1. Dear Gianluca Pinelli,

      We will be connecting at around 14h45.

      Best regards,
