CPV – Common Procurement Vocabulary
In 2002, the European Parliament and the Council of Europe approved Regulation (EC) No. 2195/2002, which established a single classification system applicable to public contracts, the CPV – Common Vocabulary for Public Procurement. The purpose of introducing this system was to assign the same description and the same alphanumeric code to goods and services in the official Community languages, thus making it possible to break down language barriers at Community level.

In November 2007, a revision of Regulation (EC) No. 2195/2002, published on 15 March 2008, was approved. This is Regulation (EC) No. 213/2008, which we make available here in 4 of the main European languages . Versions for other languages ​​can be obtained from the EUR-Lex website (see address below).
