The project's components will contribute to ensure compliance with key EU directives in the water sector notably the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (91/271/EC) and the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC). Where and if applicable, the requirements of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU as amended by 2014/52/EU and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Directive 2001/42/EC will be respected.

For any part of the project that may impact on a nature conservation site, the promoter will be required to provide to the Bank an approval of the competent authority and information on the mitigating measures required to comply with the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC.
The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project will be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2014/23/EU, 2014/24/EU or 2014/25/EU, where applicable, as well as Directives 92/13/EEC and 89/665/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the European Union, with the publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), as and where required.
