Establishing an association


An association may be established by individuals and legal entities. An association may be founded by at least 5 founders, whereby at least three of the founders must have a domicile or residence, or head office on the territory of the Republic of North Macedonia (RNM).


A citizens’ association may be established by minors over the age of 15, through a statement of consent for the establishment of an association by their legal representative, for the purposes for which the association is being established in accordance with legislation. Founders and members of an organization according to law can be foreign persons who carry the same rights and obligations as domestic persons, unless otherwise provided by law.


An association will be incorporated at a founders’ assembly. A founding act, program and statute are adopted at the founders’ assembly and the bodies of the association are elected. The association acquires the status of a legal entity with the entry in the register maintained by the Central Register of RNM. The registration is carried out by submitting an application for registration within 30 days from the day of the adoption of the founding act.

Required documentation:


In addition to these documents, the following shall be submitted in support of the application for establishment:

  • Invitation to convene the founding assembly (invitation to the founding assembly and initiative committee)
  • Certified signature form (ZP) for the President of the association
  • ID card photocopies from the founders (physical persons), and a copy of the current status for legal entities with a written authorization by the legal entity for inclusion as founder of the association, authorization of the person present at the founding assembly and accession to the legal entity as the founder of the association;
  • List of members of the Association (all members in total), certified by the President of the association
  • List of present members of the founding assembly, signed by each person present
  • ID card photocopy of the representative/representatives by law (legal entities)
  • Approval by the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of RSM insofar as the word “Macedonia” and the words derived from it are contained in the name of the association, as well as its abbreviations
