Priority question for written answer  P-004427/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Niels Fuglsang (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Exclusion of companies in tax havens from public procurement

On 7 July 2021, the Commission replied to my question on whether it is possible to exclude companies registered in countries listed on the EU’s ‘blacklist’ of tax havens from public procurement. The Commission’s answer was not very enlightening, however. I will therefore ask once again, as clearly as I can: what is legal and what is illegal under the existing legislation?

Is it possible, under the EU rules as they currently stand, for public authorities to exclude companies registered in countries on the EU’s list of non-cooperative jurisdictions? Yes or no?

This time I expect a clear yes/no answer, with an explanation. Municipalities and regions in Denmark urgently need to know which rules apply so that they can make sure their future procurement policies are tax-haven-proof.

Original language of question: DA
