CMS Derks Star Busman successfully assists DistriChip


We are pleased to announce that CMS Derks Star Busmann (Petra Heemskerk and Gerard 't Hart) was successful in interlocutory proceedings in which it represented DistriChip.

DistriChip is the organization that is responsible for the introduction of the public transport chipcard. The interlocutory proceedings were initiated by the Stichting Aanbestedingen MKB, which took that view that small and medium-sized companies were being wrongfully excluded.

The judge in interlocutory proceedings held that the suitability requirements adopted are proportional and may be upheld. Potential tenderers must have at least 700 branches in the Netherlands and achieve an annual turnover of 10 million euros.
