Germany's new law will allow faster defence procurement

15th April 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by Flavia Camargos Pereira in London


The German Armed Forces are counting on a new ally to help them overcome problems in buying urgently needed military equipment: the 'Law on Accelerated Procurement in the Defence and Security Sector and Optimization of Award Statistics'.

This legislation allows the procurement of weapons and other defence materiel at short notice. It entered into force on 4 April and is applicable to urgent acquisition needs in connection with a crisis.

The new regulation is intended to help the armed forces deal with unexpected challenges during mandated missions abroad, standby commitments, peacekeeping operations, counter-terrorism measures and large-scale emergency situations.
