Verification of compliance with tender documents

Tenders are legal and administrative procedures through which public bodies communicate their needs for building works, supplies and services provided by individuals and companies.
Companies in the plastics sector are potential suppliers of the public administration for a wide range of supplies in the form of products, which must meet certain technical requirements described in the tender specifications.

Standards are applied to verify compliance with requirements by quality assessment bodies such as AIMPLAS, which is also accredited by ENAC in accordance with the UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard.

Spanish Law 9/2017 on Public Sector Contracts fosters the use of technical standards to define the technical prescriptions in tenders. Proper use of standards in tenders therefore provides objectivity and transparency, thus simplifying the description of technical aspects.

Despite the growing importance of standards in trade and legislation, most procurement documents fail to cite technical standards. However, any company that bids for a tender must demonstrate compliance with the technical requirements whether of official standards or other specifications in the tender documents.

AIMPLAS collaborates with companies bidding for tenders to help them demonstrate their compliance with tender documents and thus increase their chances of success. AIMPLAS also works with different public administrations to ensure bidders for their tenders comply with technical requirements to deliver certain supplies. To provide these services, the AIMPLAS laboratories are accredited by ENAC in accordance with standard UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 for the most extensive scope of plastics testing in Spain.
