Oh MIA, oh my, another E-invoicing Model Interoperability Agreement!

A full 14 months after its formal creation, the EESPA has released its first deliverable. A contract. A Model Interoperability Agreement in the field of e-invoicing to be precise. Or a MIA as the EESPA calls it.

The good thing about EESPA’s MIA is that it provides for a standardised bilateral agreement for use by service providers with their chosen service provider partners. The bad thing seems to be, that the MIA is only released to its members. That seems quite the opposite to the mission statement.

Just imagine if the EESPA were to publicly distribute their Model Interoperability Agreement (and they ought to because EESPA wasn’t allowed to be a competitive organisation):

  • the EESPA would than provide for a standardised bilateral agreement for use by service providers with their chosen service provider partners for all 500+ e-invoicing and e-billing service providers all over the globe.
  • EESPA would help invoice senders and receivers who employ the services of different service providers, by facilitating the exchange of invoices through a network of interconnected parties.

As soon as we have more info on this, we’ll let you know.
