This Guidance Note sets out a common public sector approach to information to be disclosed to economic operators.

It takes account of the EU Remedies Directive (2007/66/EC) and the amending Regulations (i.e. The Public Contracts (Amendment) Regulations 2009 and The Utilities Contracts (Amendment) Regulations 2009). In particular it sets out the new rules in relation to the standstill period and explains the new remedy of ineffectiveness. It is only applicable to procurements initiated on or after 20th December 2009. Guidance Note 02/08 still applies to procurements initiated before this date.
