Introduction

This report provides an overview of legislation of Romania that imposes obligations with respect to packaging of electrical and electronic equipment and other products.

In 1994, the EU adopted the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive 94/62/EEC (the "Directive"), which partly harmonizes Member States' national packaging legislation. The Directive imposes design, take-back and information requirements on packaging.

Romania transposed the Directive through the Law no. 249/2015 on the management of packaging and waste derived from packaging (the "Packaging Act"), and the Emergency Ordinance no. 38/2016 amending and supplementing Law no. 249/2015 on the management of packaging and packaging waste. This transposition appears to be consistent with the Directive.

This report provides an overview of the national provisions that differ from or complement the Directive, including where the Directive leaves discretion to the Member States. For a detailed discussion of the Directive, including the definition of packaging, see the subject report on Packaging and Labeling in European Union.

Note that additional chemical restrictions may also be imposed on packaging by the REACH and the POP Regulations. For substance-specific information, please refer to the EU Restricted Substance Database. Please also refer to the subject report on Restricted Substances Overview in European Union.
