Brexit impact—public procurement

The UK public procurement regime derives from EU public procurement laws, and is therefore impacted by the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Though the law outlined in this Practice Note is not significantly impacted, the EU-derived legislation cited is subject to amendments required in order to ensure that it remains operative in domestic law. For further reading on the impact of IP completion day on public procurement, see Practice Note: What does IP completion day mean for Local Government? — Public procurement.

References to EU case law

This Practice Note contains references to case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Broadly, EU judgments handed down on or before 31 December 2020 (IP completion day) continue to be binding on UK courts and tribunals (even if the EU courts later depart from them), until the UK courts exercise their powers to depart from retained EU case law under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (as amended).

For the most part, EU case law made after IP completion day is not binding on the UK, although UK courts and tribunals may continue to ‘have regard to’ EU judgments if relevant to matters of retained EU law. References to EU judgments are included in this Practice Note on that basis. For more detailed information on the status and treatment of EU case law in
