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.

The main objective of the Action was to promote the use of the eDelivery DSI (Digital Service Infrastructure) amongst both private and public entities by implementing four PEPPOL Access Points, integrating the AS4 protocol, and their respective Service Metadata Publishers (SMP).

The electronic registered delivery services of four companies are interoperable and meet the requirements set in the eIDAS Regulation (Regulation EU 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services).

This allows the thousands of European companies that are already using the eDelivery services provided by the members of the consortium to have access to the cross-border exchange of electronic documents according to the technical specification of the EU core service platform.

The Action promoted the use of the eDelivery DSI around Europe, especially in the Member States of applicants (Belgium, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy and Spain), in line with the eIDAS legal and technical framework.
