Article 2


The FSR and Public Procurement


  • Giulia Benvenuti


Distortions caused by foreign subsidies in public procurement procedures are one of the specific concerns addressed by the Foreign Subsidies Regulation (FSR). This article analyses both the substantive provisions of the FSR and specifically the notion of ‘subsidies’ and the procedure managed by the European Commission to countervail the effects of subsidies in procurement procedures. The first in-depth investigation concerning a public procurement procedure is also outlined.
