Croatian Society of Lobbyists – Association for Promotion of Transparent Advocacy (CSL) has introduced the draft of a Law on Public Advocacy to the Croatian Parliament in April 2015.

Law on Public Advocacy defines the following:

– mandatory registration for those who wish to influence public authorities

– access to registered interests via public register (available online)

– accreditation for interest representatives who may enter the Parliament and attend sessions

– sanctions for those who wish to influence policies and decisions of public authorities but do not want to register

Draft bill can be downloaded here.
