Negotiated procedure to conclude a middle value contract: Developing the deliverables relating to inspections

In order to start carrying out its tasks in the field of “inspections”, ELA will launch a negotiated procedure to conclude a middle value contract to develop the deliverables pertaining to join and concerted inspections.
