This in an unofficial translation. The Act was adopted by the National Assembly on 25 June 2007 (date of promulgation: 29 June 2007), with entry into force 1 January 2008. The Act was subject to multiple amendments since, the last being Act CXL of 2015 adopted by the National Assembly on 4 September 2015 (date of promulgation: 7 September 2015) with entry into force on 8 and 15 September 2015. The current text reflects this state of affairs. (See amended versions attached.)
