IRTIC, coordinator of the Project, participates in the kick-off meeting of the Project at Reykiavik on the 6th and 7th of June.

The kick-off meeting of the ICELAND-INV18 Consortium- funded by the Innovation Networks Agency, INEA- meets up at Reykiavik to launch the Project that will allow to 8 public administrations from Iceland to adopt the EN standard.

The goal of ICELAND-INV18 is coordinate and give support to 8 public administrations in their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems to adopt the EN. This adaptation of their system will allow the administrations to receive and process EN compliant eInvoices. Their system will become, therefore, compatible with other European countries systems and will save time and money to public sector and their providers.

This Action will also contribute to the deployment of both the eDelivery and the eInvoicing Building Blocks in Iceland, engaging a representative sample of public authorities and institutions which will be, in turn, paradigmatic promoters of the eInvoicing uptaking for other public authorities and institutions in Iceland.

At the kick-off meeting taking place on 6th and 7th June have participates Icelandic administration and the IRTIC and LMT Group that will be technical coordinators of the Project.


Central validation system

A central validation service for Icelandic standards (Staðlaráð Íslands) will be set up by UNIMAZE. This validation service will provide a trusted web based tool to service providers, ERP implementers and other software companies and individual contractors implementing the EN to allow them validating a compliant EN invoice. The central validation service will be developed according to the Icelandic context and will facilitate the validation of the CIUS (Core Invoice Usage Specifications) adopted in Iceland.

The implementation will take place in the following 8 Icelandic public institutions: Reykjavíkurborg (the capital of Iceland), Grímsnes og Grafningshreppur (municipality), Skeiða- og Gnúpverjahreppur (municipality), Akureyrarkaupstaður (city), Íslandspóstur ohf. (the Icelandic post), Félagsbústaðir hf. (the Reykjavík Social Housing) and two energy companies (Orkubú Vestfjarða ohf, and Orkuveita Reykjavíkur).
