The CEF eDelivery building block supports public administrations to exchange electronic data and documents with other public administrations, businesses and citizens, in an interoperable, secure, reliable and trusted way.

This UP-Access Action aims to implement the AS4 protocol and upgrade the Service Metadata Publishers (SMP) of the 4 PEPPOL AS2 Access Points of the consortium partners (i.e. Invinet, Credemtel, Babelway and Storecove/Datajust) used by thousands of clients from different Member States. The Action will hence ensure the upgrade of the existing eDelivery solutions of the beneficiaries by migrating them from the AS2 to AS4 profile as a mandatory process defined by OpenPEPPOL. Each beneficiary will assess the main open source implementations used by the PEPPOL and eSENS community before starting their own implementation.

The new eDelivery infrastructure resulting from the Action will fulfil the corresponding technical requirements to become qualified according to the eIDAS Regulation. As a consequence, the solutions implemented will facilitate the cross-border exchange of thousands of electronic documents.
