The government in Romania introduced the obligation to report each transport for trading products with high fiscal risk via RO e-Transport. Unfortunately, because of too short implementation timelines and inadequate documentation, problems arose consisting of the inability to implement solutions from the too frequently changing documentation in the very short time imposed on its implementation. With the problems that arose in the transitioning period, the Romanian government has prescribed various penalties for non-compliance. Also, the reporting obligation by the e-Transport platform is maintained from July 1st, 2022.

However, since many obligators were unable to implement all the requirements in time and each situation, there are some changes in the application of penalties that the government of this country prescribed. In that sense, even though the obligation had officially started on July 1st, 2022, penalties are going to be applied with a certain delay.
Many entrepreneurs were confused with this situation, especially as even criminal sanctions were initially proposed for entities that did not comply with the obligation. The Romanian authorities realized the seriousness of the situation and, later published an Emergency Ordinance to amend Art. 18 of the Government Emergency Ordinance no. 41/2022 for the establishment of the National System for monitoring the road transport of goods with high fiscal risk RO e-Transport and repealing art. XXVIII of the Government Emergency Ordinance no. 130/2021.
Thanks to the provisions contained therein, the introduction of criminal penalties was postponed for now until October 1, 2022. The obligation to use the e-Transport platform continues, but the testing and implementation of the solution are ongoing.
