The CEF eDelivery building block supports public administrations and private entities 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 this Action is to implement the AS4 protocol and upgrade the Service Metadata Publishers (SMP) of 5 certified PEPPOL Access Points (AP) from Denmark, Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom for the cross-border exchange of electronic documents:

  • Simplerinvoicing FULL (Pinkroccade)
  • OpenEDI (Transalis)
  • Elcom PECOS software solution (Elcom)
  • Easy Exchange (Easy Systems)
  • Digital Cab Platform (Digital Cab)

The Action will hence ensure the upgrade of the eDelivery solutions of the beneficiaries by migrating from the AS2 to AS4 as a mandatory process defined by Open PEPPOL.

After implementation of this Action, the current clients of the EDI providers will be able to use the same consortium PEPPOL APs in compliance with the CEF eDelivery AS4 protocol.

Furthermore, targeted communication activities will be carried out by the beneficiaries to spread and disseminate the results.
