European Union – Public procurement. Article 2(6) of Council Directive (EEC) 89/665, as amended by Directive (EU) 2014/23 should be interpreted as not precluding a national procedural rule, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, which made the possibility of asserting a claim under civil law in the event of an infringement of the rules governing public procedure and the award of public contracts subject to the condition that the infringement be defiitively established by an arbitration committee or, in the context of judicial review of a decision of that committee, by a court. The Court of Justice of the European Union so held, among other things, in a preliminary ruling in the context of a claim for compensation for damage, brought in the Hungarian domestic courts, which the applicant company had suffered as result of an infringement of public procurement rules.
