Grayling AcTrend Report 2022

1,437 primary legislation acts were approved in the eight CEE countries between January 2022 and December 2022, Romania leading by far in quantitative terms. Compared to the figures of 5 to 10 years ago (2013-2017) we have witnessed a 14%* increase in the number of laws adopted by CEE countries. The ranking of the countries has not changed much over these years: Romania leads the way in terms of the volume of legislation passed, followed by Poland. In third place, Slovakia overtook Hungary. However, the overall increase in legislation was spearheaded by Romania’s total number of 573 primary legislation acts. In 2022 only Romania exceeded the 200-act milestone, while Poland, Slovakia and Croatia were above the 150 mark, Bulgaria slightly above the 100-act milestone, leaving Hungary, Czechia and Serbia below the 100-act milestone. Over a 5-year span, Romania and Hungary hold the record for the highest increase, and the sharpest decrease in the number of primary legislative acts. While the number of acts grew by a third in Romania, in Hungary it was halved.

Article 30 par. (5) of AMLD IV initially provided that access to the Register of beneficial owners is granted to any person or organisation that can demonstrate a legitimate interest. This provision was later amended by Directive (EU) 2018/843 (“AMLD V”) to state that information on the beneficial owners is accessible, in all cases, to any member of the general public. The amendment brought by AMLD V was prompted by the fact that EU member states would differently define or approach the condition that a person…
