The process of BiH's accession to the European Union is one of the main drivers of reforms in the field of environment, which is largely related to the harmonization of domestic legislation with the EU acquis. In addition to the adopted legislation, implementing regulations, rules and procedures, and the ratification of many international agreements, many strategic documents have been drafted, which are the basis of BiH's continuous work on reforms in the environmental sector.

The information system represents the way of processing information with the aim of obtaining the knowledge necessary for further action. The information system involves interconnected and functionally linked processes of collecting, transfer, processing, using and storing data. The need to introduce an information system is reflected in the ability to cover all information flows in business system management, in accordance with the nature and tasks performed in the system. An information system is expected to provide a basis for performing different tasks and requirements that participants place in the system. This demonstrates the need for clearly defined and efficient information technologies necessary for building and functioning of the information system.
