III.1.1)Qualification for the system
Conditions to be fulfilled by economic operators in view of their qualification: Each registered purchaser may impose further qualification stages or may proceed directly to select tenderers or candidates for negotiations from the suppliers or contractors registered in the FPAL database. Each registered purchaser may also, at his own discretion, use the system as the basis for selection of tender lists for contracts which are below the EU thresholds or are not subject to EU rules. The database may also be used by registered purchasers for sourcing goods and services relating to facilities or operations outwith the European Economic Area (EEA).
Those companies wishing to register for the first time on the FPAL database should reply to FPAL at the address in Annex A below.
Applicants wishing to register will be required to make a supplier application, and pay an annual registration fee levied as a contribution towards the annual administration costs of the system. The annual fee for registration on the FPAL database ranges from 590 GBP to 1110 GBP (plus VAT for UK-registered suppliers). Suppliers and contractors who have already registered on the FPAL database need not reapply, but may wish to consider updating their registration to cover additional product / service codes.
Methods according to which each of those conditions will be verified: These will be described in the details of the scheme available from the FPAL customer support team.

VI.3.1)Body responsible for appeal procedures
VI.3.2)Lodging of appeals
Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: Utilities subject to the EC procurement legislation of England, Wales and Northern Ireland will incorporate a standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. That notification will provide full information on the award decision. The standstill period, which will be for a minimum of 10 calendar days, provides time for unsuccessful tenderers to challenge the award decision before the contract is entered into. The Utilities Contracts Regulations (SI 2005 No 6) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland).
Utilities subject to the EC procurement legislation of Scotland will where appropriate incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period (or 15 days if non-electronic or fax methods used) at the point that information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. If an appeal regarding the award of contract has not been successfully resolved then the Utilities Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2006 provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rule to take action in the Sheriff Court or Court of Session.
Any such action must be brought within 3 months generally.
VI.3.3)Service from which information about the lodging of appeals may be obtained
