Parliament has approved the draft law on the modification and completion of some legislative acts - the so-called "Law of deoffshorization" at the first reading.
The project envisages modifications aimed at defining the notions of participant in privatization, bidder in the field of public-private partnership, economic operator, participant in public procurement procedures, as well as in services concessions.
The proposed regulations aim to establish restrictions on participation in privatization procedures, public-private partnerships, public procurement and concessions for several categories of legal entities.
These include: the legal entities founded by subjects from jurisdictions that do not comply with international transparency standards, legal entities comprising, directly or indirectly, one or more persons registered or residing abroad.
So as to become law, the project must be adopted in final reading. Subsequently, the Government will have to approve the methodology for establishing jurisdictions that do not implement international transparency standards and approve their lists.
