The prevention law has been promulgated by President Klaus Iohannis on Wednesday. The law requires inspection authorities who discover wrongdoing to first give out warnings and allow a certain time frame for problems to be solved.
The bill had been initiated by the Ministry of the Business Environment, Commerce and Entrepreneurship, and adopted by the parliament’s Chamber of Deputies at the end of November.
The next step in the application of the prevention law is the development of a portal for public information by the ministry, where authorities with inspection and penalty powers will be required to publish documentation and guides. These institutions must also create special sections on their website to inform the public about the authority’s attributions, as well as the rights and obligations of persons who are subject to inspection activities.
Specific penalties and correction plan models will be set through a Government Decision act, initiated by the ministry, which has announced it is currently working on the project.
