At June 18th 2009, the CEN/ISSS E-invoice Phase II held an open meeting in Brussels. The purpose of this meeting was to present the public with the more or less final results based on the objectives of this Phase II workshop:
An adoption programme for increased electronic invoicing in European business processes.
1. Compliance of electronic invoice implementations with Council Directive 2001/115/EC and the national legislation regarding electronic invoices;
2. Cost effective authenticity and integrity of electronic invoices and related business documents regardless of formats and technologies;
3. Implementation of compliant electronic invoice systems in using emerging technologies and business processes;
4. A framework for the emerging network infrastructure of ‘invoice operators’ throughout Europe.
These are the presentations that were held during this day.
CEN/ISSS invites everyone to attend the 4th CEN Industry Conference on Electronic Invoicing and Compliance. The conference takes place in the Diamant Building in Brussels on June 18th 2009.
After the completion of the CEN/ISSS eInvoicing Phase I Workshop in 2006, a Phase II workshop was launched in 2007. Now, during the Open Meeting on June 18th 2009, the final deliverables of this Phase II will be presented to reach out for public comments and reviews.
CEN/ISSS e-Invoicing Phase II: five Working Groups
Five projects have gone under way, with Working Groups:
1. An adoption programme for increased electronic invoicing in European business processes
2. Compliance of electronic invoice implementations with Council Directive 2001/115/EC and the national legislation as regards electronic invoices;
3. Cost effective authenticity and integrity of electronic invoices and related business documents regardless of formats and technologies;
4. Implementation of compliant electronic invoice systems in using emerging technologies and business processes;
5. A framework for the emerging network infrastructure of ‘invoice operators’ throughout Europe.
Resulting in several deliverables, the Working Groups and the entire CEN e-Invoicing Workshop aim to stimulate further standardisation in the domain of electronic invoicing in Europe. It should be noted that the activities are explicitly not directed towards standardisation of a document format such as UN/CEFACT or UBL.
What kind of deliverables can we expect?
So what kind of results can we expect at the Open Meeting on June 18th 2009? To get answer on that question we could take a look at the presentations performed during the Open Meeting in 2008.
In short – to be honest: as far as the EEI Platform can see- it is expected that at least the following deliverables will be presented:
- The Draft Good Practice Guidelines (Working group 2 and 3)
- E-invoice Gateway (Working group 1)
- Review of CWA 15576 (Working group 4)
- Review CWA 15582 (Working group 4)
NOTE: The EEI Platform has been chair of Working group 4 for some time. It resigned from this position due to a conflict of co-operation with one of the Workshop chairs and a difference of vision with regard to the expected deliverables and their content. The EEI Platform proposed to deliver:
- A Common Body of Definitions
- An Interaction Framework
- An E-invoicing Innovation Guideline
Progress put into perspective
So what progress has been achieved during the last twelve months? The only way to find out is to go the CEN/ISSS e-Invoice Open Conference. But not before you had a chance to look the presentations from 2008. That way you could put the new information en statements into perspective:
2008 – Working Group 1
Raising awareness of electronic invoices
2008 – Working Group 2
Overview on compliance of electronic invoices
2008 – Working Group 2:
Compliance of electronic invoices
2008 – Working Group 2:
Legal and regulatory inhibitors
2008 – Working Group 3:
Cost effective means to guarantee authenticity & integrity
2008 – Working Group 4:
Emerging technologies and business processes
2008 – Working Group 5:
Interconnection of service providers
With the final deliverables, the CEN e-Invoicing Workshop has stimulated further standardization work in the domain of electronic invoices in Europe, with a view to supporting:
- the compliance of electronic invoice implementations to Council Directive 2001/115/EC and the national legislation as regards electronic invoices;
- the effective implementation of compliant electronic invoice systems in using emerging technologies and business processes, in business-to-business as well as in business-to-government scenarios; and
- the emerging network infrastructure of invoice operators throughout Europe.
The eInvoicing Workshop Phase II is mandated by the European Commission to provide advice on the European electronic invoice implementation process. With more than 60 companies actively participating, the Workshop has become the sounding board of the electronic invoice industry – comprising software companies, service providers, end-users as well as tax authorities (e.g. Spain, NL, UK, Italy, Romania).

The IDABC programme (http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/) is supporting the design and development of eProcurement solutions compliant with the public procurement Directives 2004/17/EC and 2004/18/EC, by providing tools (mainly, the eProcurement demonstrators, the helpdesk service and the Functional Requirements) that can be used as examples and guidelines. The eProcurement Forum, a community within the ePractice portal, is organizing in cooperation with Auftrag.AT a workshop to exchange experiences about the development of Public eProcurement solutions aligned with the European legislation. The workshop will take place on the 14th January 2009 at the Schönbrunn Palace Conference Centre in Wien (Austria).
The participants will have the opportunity to have an insight into the IDABC eProcurement demonstrators and to be presented with some eProcurement cases developed using the IDABC tools as sources of inspirations. This workshop targets all the European eProcurement experts and in particular those belonging to:
- Public Administrations that are setting up new eProcurement solutions and are interested in capitalising on other experiences and in receiving information on available guidelines and tools
- IT companies in charge of the development of eProcurement solutions
- Organisations responsible for existing eProcurement solutions that need to be aligned with the European legislation
A “Call for presentations” is open until the 5th December 2008. Please contact the eProcurement Forum by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need further information on the event, or if you are interested in sharing your experience and in presenting a case.
Registration is possible via the ePractice website at http://www.epractice.eu/workshop/37. Please note that attendance is free and open to everyone who has been registered on the ePractice portal. Since the available places are limited, interested experts are invited to register soon.
ETSI will organise its 4th Security Workshop to be held at ETSI Headquarters, in Sophia Antipolis, France, on the 13th and 14th of January 2009. The increasing complexity and rapid development of new systems and networks, the sophistication of changing threats, and the presence of intrinsic vulnerabilities present demanding challenges for the Information society in its efforts to secure Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems and networks against the threats and related risks to which they are subject. To minimise exposure to risks, Security must be built in from the beginning when designing new architectures, and not added on at a later stage as an optional feature.
Security standards, sometimes in support of legislative actions, are essential to ensure interoperability between products using the same security mechanisms, to provide globally acceptable security metrics, as well as to ensure an adequate level of security for these products. This leads to a more secure and profitable environment for the industrial sector from SME to large global companies, as well as benefits for governmental organisations, research bodies and universities.
Online registration for this workshop is now open. Attendance at the workshop is free of charge and open to everyone.
