RE: Art 29  of NFR-penalties 
 
 
Dear 
 
 
I would like to inform You that penalties for the infrigement of the provisions of Regulation (EU) 
2015/2283 in Croatia  are prescribed in Article 11 of the Act on the iImplementation of Regulation (EU) 
2015/2283 of the European  Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on novel  food. This Act 
was addopted by Croatian parliament on 2. February 2018  but still it is not published in Official Gazette 
of the Republic of Croatia. For now I am sending provisions of Article 11 of the Act and as soon as it is 
going to be published in the Official Gazette I will send you a link.
