The Croatian translation of the "Compendium" does not exist as a separate complete compilation. The "Compendium", however, could be considered as having been completely translated into Croatian, because the individual recommendations corresponding to all the 9 chapters of the "Compendium" were translated, as indicated below, in 1988 and 1993.

Items numbered 14 and higher are new recommendations issued after the publication of The Purple Book (1991).
