Contracting authorities, with the exception of those referred to in Article 5(2) and (3), shall notify the Public Procurement Authority of their falling under the scope of this Act and any changes in their data within thirty days following the date from which they come under the scope of this Act or from the date of those changes.
2. The Public Procurement Authority shall maintain an up-to-date register of contracting authorities, publish it on its website, and shall provide further information about the contracting authorities included in the register, as required by the European Commission.
