EU Defence Procurement Directive text

The Defence Procurement Directive text P6_TA(2009)0016 approved by the European Parliament 14 January 2009 is available on the EP web site in the official languages of the European Union.

The English version of what officially is going to be known as the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the coordination of procedures for the award of certain public works contracts, public supply contracts and public service contracts in the fields of defence and security, is available here:

The EP amendments have been agreed with the Council, so the contents should be the final ones. While we wait for formal adoption by the Council and publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, with date, number and OJEU number, this is the best text publicly available.
