The projects to be financed under this programme loan will most likely concern investments that are expected to be carried out in existing facilities without changing their already authorised scope and would therefore not require an environmental impact assessment (EIA) under Directive 2011/92/EU. However, for each sub-operation under this programme loan the Bank's services will review during the project appraisal whether any of the concerned projects could fall under the EIA Directive, as well as any other environmental legislation, and will ensure that those investments are implemented in compliance with EU legislation.
The promoters of the projects to be financed under this programme loan will be private companies not operating in the utilities sector and not having the status of a contracting entity, thus not subject to EU rules on public procurement.
