Croatia: New Modernised Public Procurement Rules Will Enter Into Force On 1 January 2017

On 9 December 2016, the Croatian Parliament adopted the eagerly awaited new Public Procurement Act (Zakon o javnoj nabavi; "PPA")1 which enters into force on 1 January 2017. The PPA implements the new public procurement specific directives (2014/24/EU and 2014/25/EU) and brings about a number of significant changes to the Croatian public procurement legal framework. All public procurement procedures launched as of 1 January 2017 are subject to the new PPA.
