The AK is opposed to the proposed legislative act on concessions and considers the current legal situation to be sufficient to find a positive result. Due to being exempt from the scope of procurement directives and based on ECJ jurisdiction, a definition of service concessions as well as the clarification that the fundamental principles of primary law will also apply to concessions already exist.
The present proposal goes far beyond current ECJ jurisdiction and is not the “light approach” originally announced by the Commission. An approximation of service concession provisions to those of building concessions is not desirable.
