The Law No 85/2014, in Title III, Cross-Border Insolvency, takes over, in an improved form, the provisions of Law No 637/2002 applicable to legal relations with states outside the European Union. Law No 637/2002, in Title I, Relations with Foreign States, in general, adopted the provisions of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency (1997). The general principles of the UNCITRAL Model Law, originally included in Law No 637/2002, were subsequently taken over in the Law No 85/2006 on Insolvency Proceedings, as well as in Law No 85/2014, currently applicable.

An extract of the Romanian regulations for cross-border insolvency is available in English here.

Each court in Romania has a site within this portal. The information on these sites is entered and maintained directly by court staff. This information is automatically retrieved from the court case management system - ECRIS CDMS. The information on cases and hearings is automatically updated daily at central level. The most up-to-date case information (reported to the internal court case management application ECRIS CDMS) is available in the ECRIS Infokiosk application which can be accessed from the Infokiosk terminals in each court.

As the judgments in the portal are anonymised and cannot be identified by case number or by the names of the parties, each document has a unique identification code - RJ code, which can be used to cite the case law and to check the existence of the document in the portal.
