Law on the Export and Import of Military and Non-Military Lethal Goods - Licenses

In addition to what we have stated above, the Law on the Export and Import of Military Goods and Non-Military Lethal Goods furthermore prescribes that certain types of licenses are issued by the Ministry of Defense, or by the Ministry of the Interior: licenses for the import of goods intended for the Armed Forces of the Republic of Croatia and the police; licenses for the export of goods for the needs of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Croatia and the police with the intent of return of these goods back to the state; and licenses for the export of goods on the basis of the donation of the Government of the Republic of Croatia.

In addition to that, the licenses for the export of goods on the basis of international military agreements signed by the Republic of Croatia are issued by the Ministry of Defense.

Furthermore, the provisions of this Law make it possible to stop the transactions in connection with military goods, when there is doubt that these goods might be delivered to forbidden destinations, or to forbidden end users, which is necessary in order to ensure that the Republic of Croatia meets its international commitments.

Namely, the Law enables the judicial bodies to adequately determine the penalties for those breaching this Law, with high prison sentences and fines prescribed for behavior contrary to the provisions of the Law
