The information you will find in our printed materials, on our websites, and in our User Guides, is commercially sensitive. Public sector organisations have a duty of confidence towards such information, and you are required to treat it in confidence and not release it to the open market. Doing so may leave both you and ESPO exposed to legal claims.
ESPO has tried to ensure that the information we publish on print and online is accurate. Our website is continually updated, and as such provides the most up to date information available.

NUTS CODES: The European Journal template requires selection of a NUTS code (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics) in an OJEU Notice, but regrettably, will not allow selection of more than one. Thus, where a notice refers to delivery/use in more than one specific region, but not throughout the UK, a NUTS code will be selected that best reflects the region of greatest use. Where a notice refers to delivery/use within more than one specific region and also throughout the UK, the NUTS code for 'UK' will be selected.
