Amendment to Act on National Cybersecurity System

Since then, the envisaged amendment has been revised repeatedly in the course of legislative work, and the final version of the bill – of 4 March 2021 – is now being reviewed by the Council of Ministers.

The proposed changes are briefly summarized below, while it is still not certain that the proposed changes will be enacted due to the lengthy period of work on the bill.
