IBA Webinar: Exclusions and debarments in Europe


Katarzyna Kuźma

On 25 May 2021, a webinar will be held on “Exclusions and debarments in Europe”. The event is organised by the Debarment and Exclusions Subcommittee of the International Bar Association Anti-Corruption Committee. Katarzyna Kuźma, Partner in DZP’s Infrastructure and Energy Practice, will be a speaker at this virtual event.

This webinar will focus on exclusions and debarments from public procurement procedures in Europe and discuss current trending topics, such as:

  • Corporate groups, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries and assigns: how do contracting authorities and multilateral development banks (MDBs) deal with group companies in exclusion and debarment cases?
  • Antitrust and anticompetitive infringements: what are their implications on public procurement procedures?
  • Standard of proof: when is a contracting authority entitled to exclude a company from a public procurement procedure – does it have any margin of discretion? How do courts treat this matter?
