In 2020, the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Law on Archive Material and Archive Activities (the “Law”), which application began on 2 February 2021.
This Law introduces in a new way the obligations for entities that create archive material and documentary material, meaning that a distinction between archive material and documentary material is made. Documentation that is permanently kept, which is significant for culture, art, science, education, and other social areas and which is defined as such in the list of categories of archive material and documentary material with retention periods is called archive material. Documentation that does not have to be kept permanently and that can be destroyed, after the expiration of the validity period provided for in the list of categories, is called documentary material. Also, the term archival book is regulated, which represents the basic records on the entire archive material and documentary material created in the work process of the company.
The most recent legal framework regulating the privatization process in the Republic of Serbia was adopted in 2014. Certain changes have subsequently occurred in the sense that now the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Serbia has a key role in the implementation of the process. The Ministry inter alia implements the privatization process, controls the privatization process, sells public capital expressed in shares or stakes. The Ministry also performs other tasks in accordance with the Privatization Law and relevant secondary legislation.
In order to be able to stay in the Republic of Serbia for a period longer than 90 days, it is necessary that a foreign citizen has obtained a temporary residence permit, permanent residence or visa for longer residence on the basis of employment (Visa D).
