1. Where this Act prescribes that minutes shall be drawn up in the course of the procurement procedure, this criterion may also be fulfilled by recording the actions in a public document provided that the actions take place in the presence of a notary public.
2. Where contracting authorities, on the basis of this Act or a separate act of legislation based on the empowerment of this Act, require the submission of a document in the course of the public procurement procedure, the document may be submitted in a simple copy form, unless provided otherwise by an act of legislation. The contracting authority may prescribe the submission of originals or - if it is allowed by the contracting authority - certified copies of such statements that serve directly as the basis of the enforcement of a claim (in particular declaration of guarantyor surety). Where the tender is not submitted electronically, the original copy of the tender submitted pursuant to Article 68(2) shall contain the original, duly signed copy of the statement pursuant to Article 66(2). In the case of documents not submitted in Hungarian, the liable translation produced by the tenderer shall also be accepted by the contracting authority.
3. If the certificate required by this Act is non-existent in the country outside the European Union where the tenderer is established, contracting authorities may accept a certificate or a document that is equal to that certificate.
