We plan to stop our FTP server in the second half of 2023 and use https file transfer for bulk access to notices. Access will be possible via a new page on the TED website.
We are releasing this information in good time to help you prepare for this change and to avoid disruptions to our services.
Our Site news section will publish more details on this in the coming months. Stay tuned!

A major release of TED XML schemas R2.0.9.S04.E01 and R2.0.8.S05.E01 is scheduled for 26 February 2021.
This release includes the NUTS 2021 classification, together with some code changes.
If you’re a registered user, your advanced searches will be automatically migrated to the new codes. However, you’ll need to modify your expert searches yourself if the codes are affected.
Re-users whose codes are affected must also use the new codes to adapt their searches.
The TED XML schemas will be available on our FTP server under:
As of 1 January 2021 procurement notices from UK Contracting Authorities and Contracting Entities will not be published anymore on TED as the EU rules on public procurement will cease to apply to and in the United Kingdom.
Procurement notices in relation to procedures published by 31 December 2020 will still be published on TED as there is an obligation on UK Contracting Authorities and Contracting Entities to still apply EU law to on-going procedures (i.e. those published by 31 December 2020) and, therefore, an obligation to send their relevant notices (e.g. corrigenda notices, contract award notices, contract modification notices) to TED.
TED help pages have been recently updated. The page is now also available in the 24 EU languages.
The help pages guide you through the main features of the website:
If you read the help pages and still need help, don’t hesitate to contact us.
We inform you that a minor release of TED XML schema R2.0.9.S03.E01 - Intermediate release number 010-20200224 has taken place on 01/08/2020.

The TED XML schema is available on our FTP server, at the address:
The TED advanced search form has been recently revamped. The new form is in production since the beginning of June 2020 and contains the following main changes:
In order to help you navigate through the new form, the TED team has created an online tutorial, which you can access following the link below:
Please use our contact form to send us any feedback regarding these changes.
This is a provisional release of the schemas. It is currently based on an interim version of Pre-Award UBL 2.3 document types and is therefore not yet ready for use; it may still be subject to changes.
The approach adopted is the following: we keep the whole UBL set of elements but only support the use of a subset.
Further information, including Business Rules, will be provided in the near future. You may send questions and observations to the helpdesk via https://simap.ted.europa.eu/contact with the mention “eForms” in the subject.
To enable access to our services for as many users as possible, please note the following:
Any download of daily/monthly XML packages from the website is counted in the HTTP related service.
For the FTP service, once the limit is reached, the server will refuse new connections from the IP/user. Once the connection is released, a new one will be accepted.
