What is a PDP? And an OD?
A PDP is an approved service provider offering invoice dematerialisation service. Crucially, a PDP will be able to assist with producing invoices in an approved format, send e-invoices directly to their recipients and transfer data to the public invoicing portal.
In addition to PDPs, there is another service provider type: An “opérateur de dématérialisation” or OD, which is a non-approved service provider, can assist with e-invoicing and e-reporting requirements, but cannot send e-invoices directly to their recipients nor transfer data to the public invoicing portal.
What is the process of becoming a PDP?
The PDP registration process includes the submission of documentation and certifications required by the Public Finances Directorate General (DGFiP).
Once the application is submitted, PDP candidates must perform certain actions to showcase their capabilities and reliability of their solution. Successful performance will lead to a PDP status.
The PDP status is only granted for 3 years. PDPs must undergo regular audits and renew their PDP status once in 3 years through demonstration ongoing compliance with the regulations.
