The Decision on assigning a house number to the building and the Certificate on the house number of the building are issued by the locally competent cadastral office of the State Geodetic Administration, or the City Office for Cadastre and Geodetic Affairs of the City of Zagreb

Each building (residential building, office building, and public building) that is permanently or periodically used shall be assigned a specific house number within the settlement and the street in which the building was constructed.
