    In September 2010 the Croatian regulatory agency (HAKOM) put in force the ordinance on technical requirements and conditions of use of optical distribution networks. With this ordinance the Croatian regulatory agency is looking over the rim by proposing a rather technical approach for the rollout of optical access networks which will have significant influence on the deployment of next generation access networks (NGAN) in Croatia. The ordinance stipulates the requirements that have to be fulfilled in developing, planning, designing, building, using and maintaining optical access networks. Some of the main issues are the obligation of a point-to-point architecture, the focus on open access and the incorporation of municipalities in planning fibre distribution networks. In this way the agency is following a path which is unique in Europe and which is incorporating new players for building the optical network infrastructure. For Croatia an additional aspect is related to the expected accession to the European Union by mid 2013, putting the Government into the position of receiving financial support provided by the structural and cohesion fund of the EU in the amount of 7.6 billion Euros.
