Publishing the Capabilities of PEPPOL Participants

All PEPPOL participating organizations (such as contracting authorities or suppliers) publish their receiving capabilities (delivery addresses, business processes and document types supported, etc.) using a separate service called a Service Metadata Publisher (SMP).

The purpose of the SMP is similar to an address book or business registry containing details of participants within a specific eProcurement community.

Typically, an SMP is provided to complement an Access Point, because they publish details for customers of the Access Point. But an SMP can also be provided as an independent service by a third party organization – such as a Chamber of Commerce.
