Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information

III.1)Conditions for participation
III.1.1)Suitability to pursue the professional activity, including requirements relating to enrolment on professional or trade registers
List and brief description of conditions:

tenders may be submitted by insurance intermediaries and insurance companies.

If the tenderer is an insurance intermediary, or a lead insurance company for other companies, he must provide proof via any documentary evidence that he has obtained 100 % cover for the risks to be insured when tendering under this invitation to tender. Items to be sent will include, for instance, the tender signed by the lead insurer or all the insurers, the companies mandate, etc.

If the tenderer is an intermediary, he shall sign the insurance contract(s) referred to in this invitation to tender directly with an insurer or a lead insurer in the name and on behalf of said insurer or lead insurer.

Subject to the preceding paragraph, participation in invitation to tender procedures is open on equal terms to all natural persons, legal entities and public bodies falling within the scope of the treaties and to all natural persons, legal entities and public bodies of non-member countries which have entered into a special agreement with the European Union in the public procurement field, under the conditions laid down by this agreement.

The contract is also open to nationals of countries that have ratified the multilateral WTO Government Procurement Agreement, under the conditions laid down by this agreement.

If a potential tenderer is not eligible under such an agreement, he may in exceptional cases be admitted by the European Parliament, on an ad hoc basis, to participate in the invitation to tender procedure without setting a precedent or obligation for the future.

In order to determine their eligibility, tenderers must indicate in their tenders the country in which they have their head office or are domiciled. They must also submit the proof required under their national law, including:

— enrolment on the trade or professional register,

— approval from the inspection body in the field of insurance in their country of origin, or any other documentary evidence to the effect that they meet all the legal conditions required to carry out business in the field covered by the contract (including proof of enrolment),

— evidence of having taken out professional liability insurance for intermediaries; solvency certificate for companies pursuant to Directive 2009/138/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, any reinsurance,

— lead insurers and intermediaries will be required to provide a companies mandate (duly signed by the legal representative of each company involved, and the certificate showing the powers of signature of the latter).

If none of these documents provides sufficient evidence to prove and evaluate the existence of such authorisation, the European Parliament may accept other equivalent official documents submitted by the tenderer.

For economic groupings, each member will need to provide proof of authorisation to produce the object covered by the contract.
