If you've been wondering how to deal with the difficulties of implementing the e-Transport system in Romania, we have good news for you. But let’s start from the beginning.
Implementation of the RO e-Transport
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 in the inability to implement solutions from the too frequently changing documentation in the very short time imposed on its implementation. The reporting obligation by the e-Transport platform is maintained from July 1, 2022.
Many entrepreneurs were confused with this situation, especially as criminal sanctions were initially proposed for entities that did not comply with the obligation. The Romanian authorities realized the seriousness of the situation and, on 30th of June, 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 until October 1, 2022. The obligation to use the e-Transport platform continues, but the testing and implementation of the solution is ongoing.
