Republic of Croatia has recorded great success in human reproduction and infertility treatment from the fifties of the last century.
Significant steps in medicine were not though adequately followed by protection of law and more precisely protection of criminal law.
The article aims to present promotion and improvement of normative protection of certain aspects concerning human reproduction in Croatian Criminal Code from 2011 based on four incriminations: trafficking in human body parts and human embryos, cloning and human genome changes, prohibition to mix human sex cells with animal sex cells, unauthorised removal and transplantation of parts of human body.
All these offences are harmonized with relevant acts of European Union and their standards.
