In the scope of the EURINV19 project (Adopting the European Standard by using consolidated eInvoicing cloud platforms), some mandatory tests are required in order to assure that the technical implementation has been correctly performed. Thus, supported by the Coordinator (UVEG) and the Technical Manager (LMT Group), the Action’s Consortium is currently working on Activity 12 of the Grant Agreement, that involves the following tasks:
- CEF eInvoicing Conformance Testing: as EURINV19 is a project co-financed by the CEF Telecom program, it is compulsory to pass the tests established in the official CEF platform in order to assess that the solutions have been updated according to the eInvoicing Directive (Directive 2014/55/EU) and the European Standard (EN 16931). So, the Conformance Tests are being individually performed for the eInvoicing Cloud Platforms of the 5 EDI providers: NetEDI (UK), Crediflow (Sweden), Qvalia (Sweden), Transalis (UK) and Easy Systems (Netherlands); and for the eInvoicing solutions adopted by the end-users: Trinity College (Ireland), Tatra Billing (Slovakia), Carrefour (France) and Althea (UK). Up to now, some of the participants have already successfully passed these tests.
- Consortium interoperability tests: encouraging the collaboration among the partners, this task aims at the successful completion of interoperability tests among the APs of the consortium, validating the evidence of the cross-border exchange of eInvoices compliant with the EN. So, through this validation process, each EDI provider will exchange test invoices with other APs of the consortium from other Member States. As the use of standardised syntaxes approved by CEN (UBL 2.1 and CII) is one of the main objectives of the project, to be able to send, receive and process electronic invoices from other Member States is a priority. At the moment, the interoperability tests, that are still in progress, have already shown quite success, demonstrating that eInvoicing solutions are operative.
The full completion of these tests will bring the end of the Action closer; by then, the 5 EDI providers and the 4 end-users of the Consortium will have EN compliant eInvoicing cloud platforms and will make them available to hundreds of clients around the EU and associated countries.
