We regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the above procurement procedure. The grounds for our decision are that the Commission's focus in relation to the priority substances has had to shift to carrying out the Fitness Check of the EU’s main water legislation, including the Priority Substances Directive.
Only in the light of the overall results of the Fitness Check will it be possible to decide which parts of the subject matter of the tender procedure will again become a priority for the Commission.
