Pursuant to the Act on the Right to Access Information("Official Gazette", No.25/13 and 85/15) public authorities in Croatia publish registers and databases or information on registers and databases from their area of responsibility and the manner of access.

Open license enables users to use the information freely, for commercial and non-commercial purpose including reproduction, distribution, making it available to third parties and amendments, adjustment and the like, with mandatory indicating the source of information and the date of downloading or last amendment, or without indicating this information (source and date) with indicating that the information is used upon an open license and highlighting the link to an open license and the link to the published information, if any.

The user is not permitted to use the information (e.g. to make a product or an application based on open information) in the manner that would indicate the product or the application having been made by a public authority itself.
