Adequate time needed for invitations to tender to supply vaccines in Romania to enable UK exporters to bid

in Romania

Trade barrier summary

Invitations to tender for vaccine provision in Romania can be inconsistent in approach, and may be issued at short notice. This can sometimes be only two to four months before the supply of vaccine is needed. This can mean that the stock has to be produced well in advance, without any assurance of the tender opening time or of winning the tender.
