General Government Purchasing Conditions 2018 (ARIV)

Show this page in the menu

The General Government Purchasing Conditions (ARIV) were first adopted by prime ministerial order of 1 September 1993. They provide a uniform set of general terms and conditions between the State of the Netherlands (i.e. all ministries and public authorities and agencies for which the ministries are responsible) and third parties. The ARIV 2016 have been revised in connection with the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018. A standard clause on the processing of personal data has been included in the ARIV and the liability clause has been amended, in case a purchase and supply contract involves the processing of personal data. In addition, a number of provisions have been reformulated or improved for the sake of clarity.
