The author claims that the countries of Central and Eastern Europe that have signed the Agreement on Association and Stabilization with the European Union need a reform to facilitate an interaction between the national law and the EU law. This may lead to a direct implementation of the community law or/and the association law. In Croatia there is a dualistic understanding of the secondary association law that may create some obstacles in its implementation. To resolve this, the author proposes that the countries aspiring to association with the EU should redefine their national sovereignty. Such a redefinition would ensue from an acceptance of the voluntary regulatory restraints that should be based on a broad pro-European political consensus. In the situation when the concepts of the EU law's supremacy and its unequivocal implementation have to be endorsed, such restraints might even call for amending the national constitutions.
