Foreign Investment Screening Rules

On 31 May 2020, the third Anti COVID-19 legislative package entered into force, introducing, among other a screening instrument for foreign direct investments in Slovenia which is supposed to protect Slovenian strategic assets on the grounds of security and public order. The screening will be carried out by the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. The screening mechanism will be applied until 30 June 2023.

The new law transposes the requirements under the EU foreign direct investment Screening Regulation 2019/452 (hereinafter: Regulation) providing a framework for structured cooperation process between Members States and the Commission for screening of foreign direct investments into Union likely to affect security or public order (The Regulation shall apply from 11 October 2020).
