8. In order to submit a tender, a manufacturer must meet the following eligibility requirements:
(1) have all the necessary qualifications, authorizations, permits, licences, registrations, certificates, accreditations and attestations;
(2) have in Québec or in a territory covered by an applicable intergovernmental agreement an establishment where activities are carried on on a permanent basis, clearly identified under the manufacturer’s name and accessible during regular business hours;
(3) meet any other eligibility requirement specified in the tender documents.
Despite subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph, if competition is insufficient, the Minister may make eligible any manufacturer that has an establishment in a territory not covered by an applicable intergovernmental agreement, provided that the Minister so specifies in the tender documents.
A manufacturer that fails to comply with any of those requirements is ineligible.
