The PPPs/concessions sector assessment is part of the EBRD's efforts to improve the legal environment in its countries of operations. As an international institution with the mandate to assist the countries whose economies are in transition, the EBRD views the promotion of sound PPP and concession laws as essential to its work.
PPPs Concessions Law Assessment
Using the checklist, specific country assessments were carried out with the assistance of consultants. This assessment takes into account laws as they appear on the books, as opposed to the way they work in practice.

Core Principles for a Modern Concession Law (MCL)
Based on its experience and responding to the reform needs of its countries of operations, the EBRD has developed its own set of core principles of a modern condession law ("MCL"). These principles are based on international standards and best practices and therefore can assist in assessing a country's MCL and in identifying the need for reform. These principles are meant as guidelines only and speak more of the results to be achieved rather than the process by which to achieve them.
