Ukraine has launched a program to support Ukrainian mechanical engineering.
The goal of the program is to guarantee domestic goods producers participate in electronic auctions through a localization tool that provides product origin requirements for products sold through the Prozorro system. Therefore, goods in which at least 10% of the domestic component is produced in Ukraine will be allowed to be eligible for public procurement. To avoid manipulation, after winning, the supplier is obliged to provide the customer with calculations regarding the level of localization for the delivered product or batch of products. The products covered by these requirements are ambulances, fire trucks, electric buses, and individual parts such as engines, turbines, pumps, compressors, etc. The requirements do not apply to products from countries with which Ukraine has signed free trade agreements and goods from participants in the Agreement on State Procurement.
