The European Commission has published new standard forms for publication of contract notices for public, utility and defence procurement. The new forms were introduced by Commission Regulation 842/2011 (the Regulation) on 27 August 2011 which repeals and replaces Commission Regulation 1564/2005. The new forms include PIN notices, contract notices and award notices for defence and security tenders. The Regulation also includes the revised contract award and voluntary ex ante transparency notices to take into account changes introduced by the Remedies Directive in 2009. In addition, there have been revisions to standard public and utility contracts to take into account technical changes.
