Pursuant to the Payment System Act (Official Gazette 66/2018) and the Electronic Money Act (Official Gazette 64/2018), the Croatian National Bank is required to keep a register of payment service providers and electronic money issuers.

Entities entered in the register of payment service providers and electronic money issuers are:

  2. small payment institutions and their agents;
  3. registered account information service providers, their agents and branches;

  5. small electronic money institutions and their agents;
  6. branches of third-country electronic money institutions established in the Republic of Croatia;

Entities entered in the register are divided into separately kept groups. Data for individual groups are published in the register if: the Croatian National Bank has issued authorisation to at least one entity (groups under numbers 1, 4 and 6), has adopted a decision on the entry in the register (groups under numbers 2, 3, and 5) or if at least one service provider engaging in activities not considered payment services meets the conditions for entry in the register (group under number 8).
