CEN and the European Commission have signed, on an exceptional basis, a Licence Agreement for the sponsored access to two CEN technical publications on e-Invoicing, SFS-EN 16931-1:2017:en and CEN/TS 16931-2:2017:en. Standard SFS-EN 16931-1 was amended in November 2019 as SFS-EN 16931-1:2017:en + A1:2019:en.

The two deliverables enable cross-border, cross sector and domestic trade in Europe by ensuring interoperability for the electronic invoicing in public procurement. Additionally, they support the implementation of the Directive 2014/55/EU on “Electronic Invoicing in public procurement" by offering guidance to the users at national level with regard to the essential elements that an electronic invoice shall consider for the purpose of compliance with the relevant legal provisions. Hence, the use of the two CEN publications can offer presumption of conformity with some of the legal requirements of the Directive. Please read more on at
