In the article we deal with a concise recapitulation of the process of implementing the National Council of the Slovak Republic Act No. 127/1994 into the Slovak legal system. We point out the theoretical and methodical bases that were used by the authors of the Act during its preparation. We also briefly comment the purpose, object and scope of assessment. Finally, we designate those parts of the Act which maybe deemed highly progressive even after five years of existence and, on the contrary, those parts for which it will be necessary to consider a contingent revision based on a detailed analysis.
