Notice concerning a request in accordance with Article 30 of Directive 2004/17/EC

Request from a contracting entity

2013/C 303/13

On 1 October 2013, the Commission received a request pursuant to 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. The first working day following receipt of the request is 2 October 2013.

The request, from Österreichische Post AG, concerns postal services and other services as referred to in Article 6(2)(b) and (c) of Directive 2004/17/EC in Austria. The abovementioned Article 30 provides that Directive 2004/17/EC is not applicable when the activity in question is directly exposed to competition in markets to which access is not restricted. 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 is allowed a period of three months to take a decision on this request, commencing on the working day referred to above. The period therefore expires on 2 January 2014.

This period may be extended by three months. Any such extension must be published.

According to the second subparagraph of Article 30(6), further requests concerning postal services and other services in Austria before the expiry of the period opened in respect of this request shall not be considered as new procedures and shall be treated in the context of this request.
