The Real-Time Economy project published the first version of the E-Receipt Rulebook

The E-Receipt Rulebook has been prepared in the e-receipt working groups of the Real-Time Economy project. The purpose of the document is to clarify cases of use and operating methods so that structured receipts can be forwarded in the e-receipt ecosystem.

The E-Receipt Rulebook is based on the principles defined in the RTECO project and it supports the objectives of the Nordic Smart Government project in transmitting cross-border e-receipts.

The purpose of this rulebook is to describe the safe transmission of e-receipts in a four-corner model based on and using payment cards as payment instruments. The rulebook describes the basic requirements, responsibilities and obligations of those operating in the e-receipt ecosystem in order to be able to trust the transmission and operation of e-receipts in the market. The rulebook does not restrict the introduction of current and future transmission models or circles of trust.

This rulebook will be updated when new technical implementations, such as a circle of trust, new wishes or payment methods, have been presented and are in production. The State Treasury prepares the amendment proposals and convenes a working group.

Comments can be submitted and the work of the e-receipt team can be participated in by registering at
