ESPD Joint Position Paper OpenPeppol & EUPLAT

As a first initiative following the cooperation between OpenPeppol and EUPLAT, a joint position paper on ESPD has been produced to affirm the value of establishing interoperable solutions for ESPD implementations in Europe.

Both parties share a common concern for the individual national implementations of the European standards for e-Tendering, hence the position paper, which aims to showcase and emphasize the mature capability of ESPD to represent a best practice for the implementation of standardized procurement messages in the Pre-Award domain.

Please see the position paper at: OpenPeppol and EUPLAT Position paper .
