The client accepts to provide us a certificate of satisfactory execution for this reference but their standard policy is to provide such certificates only in their standard template, which clearly and undoubtedly indicates the referenced project but does not contain the totality of the required details/wording. Given that a) the client is a Directorate General of the European Commission, b) the certificate is provided in a standard template of the European Commission that is commonly accepted in similar procurement procedures, and c) the contact details of the signatory are indicated and they can therefore be contacted by the Contracting Authority, we understand that such a certificate can be accepted by the Contracting Authority.
