CEN has recently established the new CEN/TC 461 ‘Public procurement’, with the aim to define a European standard on integrity and accountability in the context of EU Public procurement. The new standardization activity stems from the discussions under the JIS Action 11 ‘Increased use of standards in Public Procurement’ and the need expressed by stakeholders (EU businesses and public authorities) to set out new requirements for procurement underpinning Directive 2014/24/EU on public procurement and Directive 2014/25/EU on procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors.
Should you be interested in taking part to the upcoming technical committees work, feel free to contact your National Standardization Body.
The secretariat of CEN/TC 461 was assigned to SIS, the Swedish standards institute.
