Entering into force of the Directive 2014/55/EU on electronic invoicing in public procurement


Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED) would like to inform its users that with 1 July 2019 the Directive 2014/55/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on electronic invoicing in public procurement will come into force in the Republic of Croatia. Please be informed that the obligation of electronic invoicing in public procurement will also apply to low value procurement procedures below 200.000 HRK for procurement of goods and services and below 500.000 HRK for procurement of works.

From 1 July 2019 HALMED will be able to receive only electronic invoices. Receiving, processing and paying in any other form of invoice from this date will no longer be possible.

HALMED, as a Public Contractor, is obligated to receive and send electronic invoices through Financial Agency - FINA. FINA is a member of PEPPOL Network, which connects partners with an aim of exchanging electronic documents.

We advise users interested in participating in HALMED’s procurement procedures to contact their information brokers in order to learn about the possibilities of electronic invoicing.
