Romania’s Government adopts prevention law draft

The prevention law draft was approved yesterday in the Government meeting.

After the adoption, the project will be sent to the Parliament, said the Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu at the opening of the Government meeting.

Government officials first discussed the prevention law draft in the Government meeting from May 11. Alexandru Petrescu, the minister for business environment, said then that this was the first step to restore a trust environment, an essential element for a stable and healthy business.

The new prevention law cancels the initial fines in the case of about 290 contraventions, replacing them with warnings.

In the first stage, authorities will apply written warnings, and financial sanctions will be applied only in the second stage if the companies don’t comply with the initial recommendations, according to the draft bill. Companies have maximum three months to remedy the problems discovered by inspectors.

The offender will benefit from this law only once in the three years.
