In the Republic of Croatia, two contact points operate under the European Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters.
The contact points are employed in the Directorate for European Affairs, International and Judicial Cooperation and the Department for International Legal Assistance and Judicial Cooperation in Civil Matters of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Croatia.
In the above Department, the contact points have several officers who help them so that the work under the European Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters (EJN) is actually carried out through team work of officers in the Department for International Legal Assistance and Judicial Cooperation in Civil Matters, which they carry out alongside other work in the scope of activities of the Department.
Although there is no formal national network in the Republic of Croatia, the contact points cooperate with judges and other experts under the Ministry of Justice and other competent authorities, professors of law, notaries and other experts and practitioners in different legal areas. The Ministry of Social Policy and Youth is also involved in the operation of the network and as a central authority for some regulations it actively participates in the meetings of the network organized by the European Commission. The network is open to all legal professionals who wish to and are interested in participating in the application of European legal instruments in the Republic of Croatia.
Communication in the Republic of Croatia is conducted by e-mail and telephone, and meetings are held as appropriate.
Communication with contact points in other Member States is carried out by e-mail, and the contact points and other members of the network regularly participate in the meetings of EJN which are organized by the European Commission.
Since the Ministry of Justice is the central authority for individual regulations, the contact points carry out operations of the central authority, make enquiries and answer the enquiries of contact points from other Member States (in cooperation with judges and other practitioners and experts as appropriate), deliver the requested data to the Commission and undertake operations necessary to publish information on relevant portals of the European Commission. The contact points distribute the publications of the European Commission to courts, citizens and other target groups and work to increase the visibility of the network.
