In 2021 various amendments were made to these regulations which arose from the UK acceding to the Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) in its own right and reflecting modifications to the United Kingdom’s Appendix I of the GPA following the UK’s Article XIX notification which came into effect on 16 May 2021. None of these amendments are substantive.
