Project Description

The Bank is considering providing a loan to CroControl Ltd. to finance urgent technological update of its equipment and technology to comply with the standards of service as required by the European industry regulators.

Transition Impact

The transition impact of this transaction derives from its in-built support for improvements to the functioning of regulatory entities and practices. SES II framework promotes establishment of a strong ANS regulatory presence in each country in order to achieve a unified European level of efficiency in ANS services provision and its safety level. The proposed Project would support the institutional strengthening in Croatia of both the ANS provider and ANS regulator, with the bigger emphasis on the latter, in terms of the introduction of necessary policies and work practices in line with SES II requirements. These can be briefly summarised as setting up specific, measurable operational targets for the ANS provider, together with specific procedures for recording performance and subsequent supervisory review.

Environmental Impact

Categorised B. The environmental and social due diligence (ESDD) for the project, which comprises of assessment the potential environmental and social issues associated with the project and the client's ability to manage relevant E&S risks as well as comply with PRs is ongoing.
