OpenPEPPOL Validation Artefacts
The current version of the Validation artefacts for all transactions in a single zip file updated with latest release.
Validation artefacts are the tools that help parties and service providers to comply with the PEPPOL Transport Infrastructure Agreements (TIA) as they help to ensure the contents of the exchanged document instances in the PEPPOL network are valid both from a syntactical and a semantic point of view. These business rules check for the correctness of the coded values, co-occurrence constraints or calculations. It is therefore necessary to use them before submitting documents to the network, in order to ensure the overall quality of exchanged electronic documents, and thus the overall performance of the nework.
