Specific exclusions in the field of electronic communications under Reg.8 Public Contracts Regulations 2015

Reg.8 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR2015) sets certain Specific exclusions in the field of electronic communications, which apply to the exploitation of public communications networks or the provision to the public of one or more electronic communications services by contracting authorities, as defined in Directive 2002/21/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on a common regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services

Reg.8 PCR2015 adopts the almost exact wording of art 8 Directive 2014/24, with the only addition that the reference to the definitions included in Directive 2002/21 includes "as amended from time to time", which creates a dynamic referral to avoid future amendments, should the EU rules change.

Other than that, this is a provision that deserves no further comment (see Pedro's, though).
