PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) is a European initiative to enable public bodies and private companies to exchange electronic business documents over a network. In a similar way as GS1 ensures many trading partners speak the same 'language', PEPPOL compliance ensures that any business can connect to any exchange service provider and trade with any other business.
In the UK, the eProcurement Strategy, published by the Department of Health in May 2014, mandates the use of PEPPOL Access Points for all hospitals and trading partners wishing to do business with the NHS. Read the NHS eProcurement Strategy here.
