This third edition of the foreword for the public procurement special issue of e-Competitions explores the principle of competition consolidated in Art 18(1) of Directive 2014/24, as well as the more specific tools to prevent the participation or exclude undertakings engaged in bid rigging or previously sanctioned for competition law infringements. References to EU and national case law are used to color the depiction of the current situation in the enforcement of EU competition law in the public procurement setting, but the selection of cases or jurisdictions considered does not attempt to be exhaustive. This third edition is updated to the content of Directive 2014/24 on public procurement and includes cases in selected jurisdictions covering the period 1 January 2014 to 30 April 2015.
