In the period from January 2018 to the end of June 2018, four measures were finalized:
• Increasing transparency and strengthening the integrity of the business environment: The Act Amending the Court Register Act was adopted in September 2017; in April 2018, AJPES carried out the upgrade of the websites;
• Strengthening the integrity and responsible work of judicial experts, assessors and interpreters: in March 2018, a systemic law was adopted regulating the status issues of judicial experts, court assessors and court interpreters, and began to apply 1 January 2019;
• Greater transparency and optimization of work related to procedures for obtaining building permits: since May 2018 a web page has been opened and accessible to the public, which gives access to the issued building permits and operating licenses (issued after 1 July 2015);
• An SME test - a tool for carrying out an assessment of the effects of regulations on the economy: is available on the eDemocracy Portal e-module module for the MSP test tool since 23 February 2018. This allows interested parties to respond to the prepared assessment of the effects of the regulation on the economy during the public hearing and to comment.


Among the activities that are successfully implemented under the 2017-2019 Programme, the number of joint public procurements has increased by more than 500 percent.

However, with regard to the implementation of joint procurements, the

Directorate for Public Procurement regularly conducts training courses and prepares appropriate guidelines.
