The Government of the Republic of Srpska approved today during its 141st session the Draft Law on Spa Resorts. This Draft Law defines the spa resorts, conditions and the procedure for declaring the status of a spa resort and regulates the services offered.
The 2009 Law on Spa Resorts has created the normative-legal framework for improvement of tourist potentials in spa resorts. The new Law practically sublimes all previous solutions in the sector of spa tourism by simplifying the procedure for declaring a certain geographic area a bath resort. New solutions could not have been incorporated in the Law from 2009 since it would mean that more than half of the Law provisions would have to be changed and according to the legal and normative rules it required that a new law is drafted.
The Government also adopted the Information Note on the legal regulations of BiH and the Republic of Srpska about the seed and planting material and the issue of seed import.
The Government has requested from the BiH institutions to initiate the procedure for changing the Law on Seed and Planting Material of Agricultural Plants of Bosnia and Herzegovina and has also requested that the List of Planting Cultivars should represent the consolidated list of cultivars prepared by entities.
The Government of the Republic of Srpska has requested the BiH institutions to change the Decision on classification of goods by the regimes of export and import in order to enable the import of the seed types which are registered in Republic of Srpska.
