Summary/Abstract: Tendencies of modern science of criminal procedural law and solutions of modern comparative criminal procedural legislation in relation to creation of normative basis for increase of efficiency of criminal proceedings found their place in criminal procedural legislation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Within numerous measures which are being taken with the aim of increase of efficiency of criminal proceedings, a special place belongs to simplified forms of actions in criminal matters. Suggesting simplification of procedural forms in traditional criminal proceedings has been inspired by a wish to save time, expenses and work and avoiding of formalities that look unnecessary in routine cases. Due to this, during the last few decades small interventions in criminal procedural legislation in general have been taken. In that context, system reform of criminal procedural legislation has been done both at the level of Bosnia and Herzegovina and its Entities as well as Brčko District of B&H, which has opened an entirely new approach to criminal proceedings which puts an emphasis not only on enhancing of protection of fundamental human rights and freedoms but also on efficiency of the proceedings itself. Simplified forms of actions in criminal matters in Bosnia and Herzegovina are one of the most important instruments of criminal proceedings efficiency.
