The European Parliament approved on Wednesday the proposal for new Directives on Public Procurement, reaching a further step in the ongoing modernisation process of the rules on Public Procurement.
 
The new Directives on public procurement and concession contracts will repeal the current rules as set forth respectively in Directives 2004/17/EC and 2004/18/EC.
 
The next steps include approval by the Council. If approved without amendments, they will be published in the Official Journal and will enter into force 20 days following its publication.
