The Committee on Constitutional and Legislative Issues and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR), with the support of the OSCE Mission to Serbia, organised the sixth workshop on the “Preparation of the Roadmap to regulatory reform of the legislative procedure and quality of legislative drafting in the Republic of Serbia”, on 26 and 27 November 2014.

The Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional and Legislative Issues, Dr Aleksandar Martinovic, said that the Committee is the focal point of the legislative knowledge and experience essential for the quality of the regulations passed by the National Assembly. Martinovic said that cooperation between the Committee on Constitutional and Legislative Issues and ODIHR and the OSCE Mission to Serbia, launched in 2011 with the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, is very important for the improvement of the legislative procedure and quality of legislative drafting in Serbia
Alice Thomas, Chief of OSCE/ODIHR's Legislative Support Unit, said that the purpose of the workshop is to discuss possible solutions and ways to improve the legislative procedure and quality of legislative drafting, as well as present the international standards achieved and best practice examples.
In the course of the two-day workshop, the participants discussed three topics: legislative consolidation and harmonisation, monitoring legislative implementation and evaluation, and participation of the public in the legislative process. ODIHR experts Prof. John Bates and Dr Melanie Sully presented the comparative legal experience and the international standards achieved in these spheres, while the situation in Serbia was presented by Assistant Director of the Republic Legislation Secretariat Ranka Vujovic, Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional and Legislative Issues Dr Aleksandar Martinovic and Transparency Serbia Programme Director Nemanja Nenadic.
