Model Interoperability Agreement for the Transmission and Processing of Electronic Invoices and other Business Documents (MIA V4.0 – 24 May 2018)
EESPA acknowledges that the original source material for this document is the Draft Model Interoperability Agreement for the Transmission and Processing of Electronic Invoices and other Business documents as prepared by the CEN Workshop on Electronic Invoicing Phase 3 and which following finalization in February 2012 was released by CEN. This document has been based on the CEN Workshop Agreement version 0.91 dated 3rd December 2011. It has been substantially amended for use by the service provider community in the light of evolving legal, technical and market requirements.
This Model Interoperability Agreement and its Companion (described as the MIA/Companion) are available for the use of EESPA Members and are also placed in the public domain for the information of stakeholders and for adoption by other service providers or communities of service providers, which wish to inter-operate with each other. It is recommended that for those service provider organizations that meet the criteria for Membership of EESPA, they seek such status in order to gain the benefit of the community approach. Interoperating service providers are free to use the MIA/Companion in whole or in respect of relevant parts provided that they respect their principles and intent. Any party using the MIA/Companion or any parts thereof does so at its own risk and responsibility.
All rights are reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced for general distribution in any form or by any means without prior permission of EESPA. The Intellectual Property and Copyright of the MIA/Companion belongs to EESPA and no rights are transferred to third parties by virtue of their use of the MIA/Companion. No-one has the right to grant rights in or gain pecuniary advantage from the documentation.
Notwithstanding the fact that the utmost care has been observed in the drafting and formulation of the MIA/Companion, EESPA can under no circumstances be held liable for errors, omissions or misinterpretations arising in their use.
