Commission Directive 2001/78/EC

of 13 September 2001

amending Annex IV to Council Directive 93/36/EEC, Annexes IV, V and VI to Council Directive 93/37/EEC, Annexes III and IV to Council Directive 92/50/EEC, as amended by Directive 97/52/EC, and Annexes XII to XV, XVII and XVIII to Council Directive 93/38/EEC, as amended by Directive 98/4/EC

(Directive on the use of standard forms in the publication of public contract notices)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/50/EEC of 18 June 1992 relating to the coordination of procedures for the award of public service contracts(1) as amended by Directive 97/52/EC(2), and in particular Article 22 thereof, Council Directive 93/36/EEC of 14 June 1993 coordinating procedures for the award of public supply contracts(3) as amended by Directive 97/52/EC, and in particular Article 14 thereof, Council Directive 93/37/EEC of 14 June 1993, concerning the coordination of procedures for the award of public works contracts(4) as amended by Directive 97/52/EC, and in particular Article 35(2) thereof and Council Directive 93/38/EEC of 14 June 1993, coordinating the procurement procedures of entities operating in the water, energy, transport and telecommunications sectors(5) as amended by Directive 98/4/EC(6), and in particular Article 39(2) and Article 40(2) and (3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Directives 92/50/EEC, 93/36/EEC, 93/37/EEC and 93/38/EEC stipulate that contracts to which they apply must be published in the Official Journal of the European Communities and specify the information they must contain; these Directives also establish models in accordance with which notices must be drawn up; this obligation arises from article 9(4) of Directive 93/36/EEC, Article 11(6) of Directive 93/37/EEC, Article 17(1) of Directive 92/50/EEC and Article 21(1) and (4), Article 22(2) and Article 24(1) of Directive 93/38/EEC.

(2) The Commission adopted a recommendation (91/561/EEC) on 24 October 1991(7) and a communication on 30 December 1992(8); the use of certain model notices for supplies and works contracts is therefore recommended. These models differ from the model notices in the annexes to the Directives.

(3) The models laid down in the Directives now need to be modified in order to contribute to simplifying the implementation of the advertising rules while adapting them to the electronic means developed as part of the information system for public procurement (SIMAP), launched by the Commission in collaboration with the Member States. Moreover, the use of standard forms and the possible use of the common procurement vocabulary (CPV) will contribute to greater transparency in the market. For clarification purposes, it is suitable to replace the abovementioned annexes by the standard form.

(4) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinions of both the Advisory Committee on Public Procurement and the Advisory Committee on Telecommunications Procurement,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

1. Annex IV to Directive 93/36/EEC shall be replaced by Annex I to this Directive.

2. Annexes IV, V and VI to Directive 93/37/EEC shall be replaced by the text of Annexes II, III and IV respectively to this Directive.

3. Annexes III and IV to Directive 92/50/EEC shall be replaced by Annexes V and VI respectively to this Directive.

4. Annexes XII to XV, XVII and XVIII to Directive 93/38/EEC shall be replaced by Annexes VII to XII respectively to this directive.

Article 2

1. Member States shall take the measures necessary to comply with this Directive not later than 1 May 2002. They shall immediately inform the Commission.

2. When Member States adopt the measures referred to in article 1, these shall contain a reference to this Directive or shall be accompanied by such a reference on the occasion of their official publication. The methods for making such a reference shall be laid down by the Member States.

Article 3

This Directive shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

Article 4

This Directive is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 13 September 2001.
