Participation of third-country bidders and goods in the EU procurement market

On 24 July 2019 the EU Commission published a guidance on the participation of third-country bidders and goods in the EU procurement to ensure the fair competition, high quality and a level playing field. The guidance contains practical advice to public buyers in the Member States and helps them identify which third country bidders have secured access to the EU procurement market. It also helps to review offers efficiently and to tailor their procurements to choose the most innovative, social or green option.
