About ICT Committee

The initiative to establish the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Committee came from AmCham members in December, 2006, with an objective of facilitating the development of a contemporary, knowledge-based society in Serbia via effective access and information management for individuals and businesses at a competitive price.

2009

In 2009, the Committee submitted comments on the Draft Law on e-Documents to the Ministry for Telecommunications and Information Society and is currently preparing legal analyses on ICT-related laws for the Guillotine project*. ICT Committee comments on the Draft Law on e-Documents were incorporated in the final draft and the Law passed by the Government Parliament enabling, among other things, document certification by legal entities.

Guillotine project*: The "Guillotine" or "SRP" project (World Bank project, working within the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development) deals with removing unnecessary and inefficient regulations with the aim to improve the business environment, reduce legal uncertainty and increase competitiveness of the local economy.
