be applied by all Contracting Authorities, even when not foreseen in their procurement procedures. Furthermore, this Section develops the relevant provisions which must
be applied by the Contracting Authority for the procurement of medical equipment, medicines and food. Finally, this section clarifies the concept of using pre-established stocks.
