User Groups


PEPPOL defines 3 user groups as typical PEPPOL pilot participants. Together, they form an eProcurement community:

  • A contracting authority: means a state, regional or local authorities, bodies governed by public law, associations formed by one or several of such authorities or one or several of such bodies governed by public law;

  • An economic operator: in the PEPPOL context means a company which supplies goods and/or services to contracting authorities in the EU;

  • An ICT solution or service provider: providing software or services to support the PEPPOL technology.

A valid PEPPOL pilot must facilitate trade between contracting authorities (buyers) and one or more economic operators (suppliers), who may be supported by different ICT solution or service providers. Read more about the PEPPOL pilot requirements.
