How to become an Access Point in the Peppol Network?
Please go to our pages for service providers in OpenPeppol - eDelivery, SMP and format (pages in Norwegian)
How to become an SMP in the Peppol Network?
In Norway it is common to use the Norwegian SMP called ELMA. Access Points operating with Norwegian receivers of messages are recommended to use ELMA.
When you are a certified Access Point with end-points in Norway you can get access to ELMA.
If you are to make an SMP for receivers outside Norway you must make your own SMP or buy the service from an existing SMP service provider.
To find a receiver in the Peppol network use Peppol Directory. For most receivers in Norway you can use the ELMA lookup.
Who are AP's, ERP vendors, accounting systems, web-portals operating in Norway?
Listed under, you will find a list of actors operating in Norway:
- Access Points (AP)
- ERP vendors
- Accounting operators
- Web-portals (for making an eInvoice without having your own accounting system)
How to send an electronic invoice
You can create valid electronic invoices in Norway in two ways:
- using your internal ERP or accounting systems
- using an approved invoicing portal provider
Step by step guide to creating an invoice using your own internal ERP or accounting systems
- Implement support for standard format Peppol BIS or Elektronisk Handelsformat (EHF) directly in your system or via a service provider.
Generate an Peppol BIS or EHF using your system.
Validate the format so that the format is correct before sending.
- Connect to an access point.
Many commercially available accounting and ERP systems already have built-in access point capabilities that you can activate, by contacting your software provider.
You can also purchase a connection agreement from an access point provider (list in Norwegian). See also OpenPeppol list.
- Confirm the identity of the recipient in the address register, using their organization number ELMA og Peppol Directory.
- Send your Peppol BIS or EHF to the recipient identified in ELMA(SMP), using your connection to the Peppol infrastructure.

Additional work that is not a part of DFØ
DFØ does also provide additional work that is not a part of The Norwegian Agency for Public and Financial Management (DFØ) as a PEPPOL Authority:
PEPPOL network – eDelivery (Access Point)
The Norwegian Digitalisation Agency (Digdir) has developed a program for exchanging messages between Access Point in OpenPeppol – Oxalis.
Oxalis is the most used exchange message program in the Peppol network. Oxalis is also used in OpenPeppol testbed.
Oxalis is compliant with the EU commission's CEF project and is listed on the CEF conformant page.
Technical information about Oxalis, visit Oxalis Community technical pages.
PEPPOL network – SMP (ELMA)
The Norwegian Digitalisation Agency (Digdir) has developed an SMP (ELMA) for the Norwegian marked. ELMA contains all receivers that can receive EHF/Peppol BIS messages via the Peppol network.
Receivers in ELMA can be viewed on the ELMA site at Digdir or Peppol Directory.
For technical information about ELMA, visit Digdir's technical pages.
Formats developed by The Norwegian Agency for Public and Financial Management (DFØ) – EHF
The Norwegian Agency for Public and Financial Management (DFØ) has developed formats for the Norwegian marked. These formats are mostly compliant with Peppol BIS formats.
