The potentials in Article 42.3.b-d in the European public procurement directive 24/2014 on “Technical Specifications” is unfamiliar to most contracting authorities in Europe. This is the basic reason for creating the European Network on handling the challenges in Article 42 when developing technical specifications in public procurement. 20 countries participate.

The purpose of these meetings is not interpreting Article 42 but presenting practical solutions and debating the potentials for national public authorities for further professionalized public procurement as well as for NSB’s sales and promotion of standards.
Increased understanding and use of standards in public procurement can save 5-10 % on national public procurement GDP and introduce documentable sustainable public procurement.
