București – 11 Aprilie 2017 – Experți europeni clarifică excluderea ofertanților în proceduri de achiziții publice, în cadrul unei noi conferințe organizate de EMEA Conferences.

 

Lectori recunoscuți pe plan internațional vor explica riscurile practice de excludere a ofertanților în procedurile de achiziție publică, în special în cazul încălcării legislației concurenței și a protecției datelor personale.

 

Domnul Silviu-Cristian Popa, președintele Consiliului Național de Soluționare a Contestațiilor (CNSC) va deschide conferința. Acesta va prezenta elemente esențiale din practica CNSC.

 

Peter Trepte, Roger Bickerstaff și Aris Georgopoulos sunt avocați de instanță sau consultanță în cadrul unor firme internaționale prestigioase cu birouri în Marea Britanie, și lectori la Universitatea din Nottingham.

 

Practicienii români din domeniul achizițiilor publice vor avea ocazia să descopere analize și soluții de actualitate, prezentate din perspective complementare – practică și teoretică -, pornind de la exemple concrete si practica Curții Europene de Justiție.

 

Temele dezbătute în cadrul evenimentului includ:

 

  • Excluderea ofertanților ca urmare a unor abateri profesionale grave sau a încălcării grave sau repetate a obligaţiile principale în cadrul unor contracte anterioare
  • Efectele noilor reglementări europene privind protecția datelor personale asupra procedurilor de achiziție publică
  • Implicațiile din perspectiva dreptului concurenței ale trucării licitațiilor și ale creării asocierilor în procedurile de achiziție publică

 

Temele sunt extrem de importante în contextul actual. Consiliul Concurenței a anuntat în mod public că va declanșa o serie de investigații privind asocierile participante la proceduri de achiziție publică.  Implicațiile generate de intrarea în acorduri de asociere sunt esențiale în luarea deciziilor de business corecte.

 

Noul Regulament vizând Protecția Datelor Personale va intra în vigoare anul viitor. Acesta conține sancțiuni extrem de mari în cazul încălcării obligațiilor privind protecția datelor personale, calculate prin raportare la cifra de afaceri globală a întreprinderii. Așadar, devine imperios necesar ca practicienii să cunoască implicațiile asupra procedurilor de achiziție publică ale noului Regulament privind Protecția Datelor Personale.

 

Peter Trepte este licențiat în drept la două universități din Marea Britanie și Franța, și este doctor în drept.
