Common Procurement Vocabulary
In public procurement there is a classification system whose main objectives are to provide all businesses with easier access to public sector contracts.
The European Commission has adopted a Regulation that
updates the Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV), which is the EU-wide classification system for public procurement contracts.
The new system will be more user-friendly and will take into account recent developments in technology, making it easier for businesses, including Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Social Economy Enterprises (SEEs), to sell their products and services to public authorities across the EU.
So if you wish to be a contract supplier?
You need to know who these people are and what function they perform.
The CPV helps all EU businesses to easily identify contracts irrespective of the original language of the tender notice, thereby increasing competition, efficiency and transparency.
