Notice concerning a request under Article 30 of Directive 2004/17/EC

Request from a contracting entity

2011/C 337/06

On 26 October 2011, the Commission received a request in accordance with Article 30(5) of Directive 2004/17/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 coordinating the procurement procedures of entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors (1). The first working day following receipt of the request was 27 October 2011.

This request, from the Bundesverband der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft e.V. (Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry) on behalf of the contracting entities in that sector, concerns electricity production and wholesale in Germany.

Article 30 provides that the Directive does not apply where the activity in question is directly exposed to competition on markets to which access is not limited. These conditions are evaluated solely for the purposes of Directive 2004/17/EC and are without prejudice to the application of competition rules.

The Commission has a period of three months, as from the working day referred to above, within which to take a decision on this request. The period therefore ends on 27 January 2012. This period may be extended by three months. Notice of any such extension must be published.

Pursuant to the second subparagraph of Article 30(6), further requests concerning electricity production and wholesale in Germany, submitted before the period opened for this request expires, will not be considered as new procedures and will be dealt with as part of this request.
