Perpetrators of crimes, especially those that can be classified as economic crime, use various means to cover up the commission of crimes. These means include the use of information technologies, and many of these crimes are difficult to prove without special knowledge. Due to that, the detection and proving of these criminal acts is extremely difficult. During the pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, there was a great need for the use of electronic evidence in criminal proceedings. Therefore, in an official communication, the European Commission addressed the European Parliament, the European Social Council and the Committee of the Regions by submitting a document on digitalization at the level of the European Union offered recommendations for overcoming the identified problems. In this paper we started from the assumption that the national legislation of the Republic of Serbia needs to be further improved in order to be able to use electronic evidence at the national level and during criminal cooperation at the international level. Our conclusions are based on an analysis of international regulations, EU documents and national legislation.
