Licenses are granted only to commercial entities headquartered in Romania activating internationally. The request for the issuance of licenses has to be made for each country, foreign business partner and the tariff category of the product that is traded. The main institution which handles the issuance of the licenses is the Romanian Ministry of Economy and Finance, where the applicants must send their requests.
In specific situations, the internal regulations applicable in this country require the issuance of the authorizations from various public institutions just for the cross-border transit of goods, but this is necessary only for certain categories of products and our Romanian law firm can assist you with information on the current regulations.
Granting of the authorization will be refused in the following situations: the entity does fulfil the legal conditions necessary for international commerce, as a sanction to the importer/exporter, the merchandise is subject to control and supervision from the Romanian authorities (or the authorities of the country of destination) and the conditions for the authorization are not fulfilled, the merchandise is forbidden to be imported or exported etc.
