THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Articles 57 (2), 66 and 100a thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (2),

Acting in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 189b of the Treaty (3),

(1) Whereas the Council, by its Decision 94/800/EC of 22 December 1994 concerning the conclusion on behalf of the European Community, as regards matters within its competence, of the Agreements reached in the Uruguay Round multilateral negotiations (1986 to 1994) (4), approved on behalf of the Community, inter alia, the Agreement on government procurement, hereinafter referred to as 'the Agreement`, the purpose of which is to establish a multilateral framework of balanced rights and obligations with respect to government procurement with a view to achieving liberalization and expansion of world trade; whereas the Agreement has no direct effect;

(2) Whereas Directives 92/50/EEC (5), 93/36/EEC (6) and 93/37/EEC (7) coordinated the national procedures relating to public service, public supply and public works contracts respectively, in order to introduce equal conditions of competition for such contracts in all the Member States;

(3) Whereas the contracting authorities covered by the Agreement which comply with Directives 92/50/EEC, 93/36/EEC and 93/37/EEC, as amended by this Directive, and which apply the same provisions as regards contractors, suppliers and providers of services of third countries signatory to the Agreement are therefore in conformity with the Agreement;

(4) Whereas, in view of the international rights and commitments devolving on the Community as a result of the acceptance of the Agreement, the arrangements to be applied to tenderers and products from signatory third countries are those defined by the Agreement, the scope of which does not, in the case of Directive 92/50/EEC, include service contracts listed in Annex I B thereto, R& D service contracts mentioned in category 8 of Annex I A thereto, telecommunications service contracts mentioned in category 5 of Annex I A thereto, whose CPC numbers are 7524, 7525 and 7526, and financial service contracts mentioned in category 6 of Annex I A thereto in connection with the issue, sale, purchase or transfer of securities or other financial instruments, and central bank services;

(5) Whereas certain provisions of the Agreement introduce more favourable conditions for tenderers than those laid down in Directives 92/50/EEC, 93/36/EEC and 93/37/EEC;

(6) Whereas, when contracts are awarded by contracting authorities within the meaning of the Agreement, the opportunities for access to public service, public supply and public works contracts available pursuant to the Treaty to undertakings and products from the Member States must be at least as favourable as the conditions of access to public contracts within the Community accorded pursuant to the arrangements contained in the Agreement to undertakings and products from third countries which are signatories to the Agreement;

(7) Whereas it is therefore necessary to adapt and supplement the provisions of Directives 92/50/EEC, 93/36/EEC and 93/37/EEC;

(8) Whereas the application of these Directives must be simplified and the balance which has been reached in the current Community legislation in the field of public procurement must be maintained as far as possible;

(9) Whereas it is therefore necessary to extend the applicability of certain of the adaptations of Directive 92/50/EEC to all the services covered by this Directive;

(10) Whereas contracting authorities may seek or accept advice which may be used in the preparation of specifications for a specific procurement, provided that such advice does not have the effect of precluding competition;

(11) Whereas the Commission shall make available to small and medium-sized undertakings the training and information materials they need to enable them to participate fully in the changed procurement market,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
