March the 6th, 2021 - The eReconstruction system is now in operation in earthquake-stricken Sisak-Moslavina County in central Croatia, aiming to make administrative processes for those who need construction services more easily accessible.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, Minister of Construction Darko Horvat recently presented a new system for the electronic submission of requests for the reconstruction of earthquake-damaged buildings - the innovative new eReconstruction system. Croatia´s eReconstruction system has otherwise been in operation for a couple of days now, and the minister has emphasised the fact that it will speed up the process of submitting and receiving applications.

"In cooperation with the company APIS IT, we created the eReconstruction system in order to make the process of applying for renovation/reconstruction following the earthquake as easy as possible for our affected residents and to offer them several different opportunities for this purpose," explained Horvat.

Easy access to the application for all natural and legal persons is provided through the e-Citizens (e-Gradjani) system, and a level three credential will be sufficient for entry via NIAS.

The Minister revealed that the doors of the Reconstruction Information Centre will also open in the centre of Zagreb by March the 15th, which will house officials of the Ministry, the Reconstruction Fund and the Central State Office for Reconstruction and Housing, as well as employees of the Legal Clinic.

People will be able to get their hands on all of the necessary information and advice there, and they will also be able to submit requests for property reconstruction.

"We want to continue to be here, present on the ground as much as possible, so that we can make the procedures for submitting applications for reconstruction as simple as possible. Our focus now is on issuing the first decisions on reconstruction, so that they are sent to the Fund and the Central State Office for operationalisation and the beginning of the organisation of reconstruction, " concluded Minister Darko Horvat.
