  • Trades Secrets Protection under the Romanian Law :

    Following the implementation in the domestic law of the Trade related Aspects of Intellectual Property Treaty, the Romanian Unfair Competition Law defines the trade secret as an information which is not generally known or is not easily accessible to the people usually dealing with this kind of information, which derives economic value from the fact of being secret and for which the legitimate holder took the reasonable steps to keep it secret. Anything may be a secret of economic value: a process, an error to avoid, an invention, an idea, a discovery, a prognosis, a list of clients or suppliers, a strategy, the source-code of a software, a formula, a fact.

  • The Dispute Resolution Review Sixth Edition - Romania

    Disputes in Romania are settled in court in the vast majority of cases, under procedures regulated mainly by the new Civil Procedure Code (CPC). The CPC entered into force on 15 February 2013, has carried out a systemic and extensive overhaul of the Romanian dispute resolution model. With a specific focus on acceleration of trial proceedings, the new regulation has reformed both the schedule and the content of proceedings taking place in various phases of the lawsuit, while attempting to clarify many of the controversies raised by interpretable provisions in the former regulation.
  • For sale: Romania - "Europe's granary"

    Initiated late November 2013 and adopted by the Romanian Parliament on 17.12.2013 (to be published upon the President's confirmation), the law regarding purchase of agricultural lands by non Romanian EU Citizens is setting the ground rules expected for the past 7 years, since Romania's accession to EU.

  • The Mining Law Review Second Edition - Romania

    Before 1989, when the Communism regime fell, mineral resources in Romania were exploited by state-owned companies. Although these exploitations were advertised as big economic successes of the communist governments, in reality, most of them were using outdated technology and some caused significant pollution in the mining perimeters. Moreover, in the context of Romania's negotiations to join the European Union, some of the mining exploitations had to be shut down as they were far from being compliant with the European environmental standards.

  • How can the Romanian Constitution be revised

    Although its stability over time represents the essence of the Romanian Constitution (the “Constitution”) and of any constitution, such fundamental law within the Romanian legal system should at the same time, at any moment, represent both a frame of reference for the Romanian social, political and economical life and a reflection of such. Given the accelerated changes within the society, in order for the Constitution to be brought in line with the overall social, political and economical evolution and perspectives, a procedure for its revision and also the limitations in what regards the possibility for the Constitution to be revised are established by this fundamental law itself. .

    1. Background The Romanian Competition Law no. 21/1996 (the " Law ") has been adopted and amended on various occasions so that it reflects the evolution of the competition law provisions in the EU. On 6 July 2010 the Law has been substantially amended, introducing among other institutions the commitments procedure for anticompetitive practices. Previously, the commitments were available only in merger cases under the form of remedies. The commitments procedure has been detailed in RCC guidelines issued in December 2010 (the " Guidelines "), which have been amended at the end of year 2012.
  • VAT challenges in 2012; there’s plenty to come

    If the Romanian taxation system were under any sign, it would surely not have been Libra this year. Hence, the unbalanced practice of abrupt or disputed changes to the tax legislation persisted in disregarding the principles set forth in art. 4 of the Romanian Fiscal Code, whereby (i) the code is to be amended solely based on a law, (ii) the amending law must be advocated for, as a rule, six months prior to its entry into force, and (iii) any amendment to the code will enter into force starting the 1st of January following the year it was adopted.

  • Guarantees under the New Civil Code

    After the New Civil Code entered into force on October 1, 2011, significant amendments were brought to the legal framework regulating the guarantees’ field, either by effective legislative changes to the existing institutions or by introduction of new types of guarantees. The New Civil Code also changed the terminology in the field (e.g. “mortgage” designates both securities over real estate and movable assets, while “pledge” is now referring only to a security interest with dispossession).
