Electronic Invoicing – Trends and standardisation

TeleTrusT beobachtet europäische Standardisierungsaktivitäten  Am 18.06.2009 fand in Brüssel eine gemeinsame Veranstaltung der EU-Kommission und dem Europäischen Komitee für Normung (CEN) statt. Teilnehmer waren Industrie-, Forschungs- und Behördenvertreter. TeleTrusT war auf der Zusammenkunft als Beobachter repräsentiert.

Hintergrund waren bzw. sind Standardisierungsaktivitäten auf dem Gebiet „e-Invoicing“ im Rahmen sogenannter CEN-Workshop Agreements (CWA). Das Anliegen ist in folgendem Originaltext skizziert:

With the final deliverables [CWAs], 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 e-Invoicing 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).
