National Context

Norway is one of the pioneers in Peppol having participated in the original PEPPOL project. Peppol BIS is adopted nationally through the branding Elektronisk Handelsformat (EHF) and is made mandatory for public sector though our procurement legislation.

The main pillar is invoicing where an estimated 50% of the 140 million B2B and B2G invoices sent per year use the EHF/Peppol BIS format.

Our focus now is on building on this success for the digital transformation of other parts of the Post-Award domain, i.e. increasing the use of catalogues and orders, as well as investigating use of the Peppol infrastructure and the OpenPeppol governance model within other domains such as eGovernment and ePayment. 

Peppol Authority

The Norwegian Agency for public and financial management (DFØ) is mandated as the Norwegian Peppol Authority. This mandate is given by the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation.  

Use of Peppol in Norway

The terms and conditions related to the use of Peppol Service Domains in Norway are documented on our technical homepage here:    

DFØ has defined specific requirements for SPs providing Access Point (AP) or Service Metadata Publisher (SMP) services in Norway. These are contained in the Peppol Authority Specific Requirements, which can be found in the Library here.
