Procurement Legislation

Irish and EU Directives on Public Procurement


The key EU directives to be aware of are:-

  • EU Directive 2004/18/EC Public Sector Directive
  • EU Directive 2004/17/EC Utilities Directive
  • EU Procurement Remedies Directive 2007/66/EC

The above Directives have their genesis in previous EU Policy and legislation.  However for the sake of clarity, it is not necessary to go into such detail at this juncture.
