About the event
The objective of this launch event was to celebrate the official publication of the standard and to provide a platform for the public and private sector to exchange views and expertise with regard to approaches for the implementation of the Directive and conformance to the standard to reap the benefits of electronic invoicing.
This event represented the launch of the next big step for eInvoicing B2G as it kicks-off the implementation stage in EU Member States and EEA countries. It also represented an important step towards realising the potential of the Digital Single Market.
The European Commission mandated CEN to develop the European standard on eInvoicing and other standardisation deliverables to support the implementation of Directive 2014/55/EU on electronic invoicing in public procurement.
