Abstract

Most public contracting authorities are obliged to require conformance to standards when procuring information technology and telecommunications products in contracts over certain threshold values. There are derogations to cover cases where this would be inappropriate. This guide explains the legal requirements for reference to IT standards in public procurement, and certain related requirements concerning reference to standards in technical regulations. It provides some advice on how affected bodies can meet the legal obligations and gain maximum benefit for themselves at the same time.
