On 28 March 2014, three new Directives were published on OJEU:

1.  Directive 2014/23 relating to concession contracts;

2.  Directive 2014/25 replacing the 2004/17, the “Utilities Directive”; and

3.  Directive 2014/24 replacing 2004/18 the “Classic Directive” that govern how public bodies in the EU can award public works, service and supply contracts.

Member States had until 18 April 2016 to implement the new Directives via domestic legislation.  On 5 May 2016, Ireland transposed two of the directives into Irish law with two new pieces of legislation.
