Bulgaria's competition regulator said it has refused to open proceedings in relation to a complaint filed by W.E.T. Automotive Ukraine concerning a 51.7 million levs ($31.6 million/26.4 million euro) tender for repair of passenger railcars launched by Sofia-based railway company BDZ Passenger Services.
The Commission for Protection of Competition on July 13 decided against launching proceedings into the complaint, data from its website shows. Earlier this month, the regulator said it will not consider the complaint unless W.E.T. Automotive Ukraine pays the required 4,500 levs fee and provides documents showing who the company's official representative is. W.E.T. Automotive Ukraine also needed to provide an e-mail and mobile number for contact. According to data from the competition regulator's website, the complaint was filed on June 6. The deadline for submitting offers for the contract expired on June 12, according to the public procurement notice.
