Romania: CES- Certificate of Emergency Situations


On 25.03.2020, the Order regarding CES (Certificate of Emergency Situations) – essential in obtaining the facilities and support measures or in commercial relations – was issued in the Official Monitor, in which the types of CES and the necessary documents are presented.

CES are issued to applicants in 2 forms:

  • CES Type 1 – (Annex 1) – for applicants who request its granting, based on the declaration of total or partial interruption of the activity during the decreed state of emergency;
  • CES Type 2– (Annex 2) – for applicants requesting its granting based on the declaration of a decrease of incomes in March 2020 by at least 25% compared to the average of the income for the period January-February 2020.

Applications for CES are only submitted electronically. In order to be issued these certificates, applicants should upload the following documents on the platform:
• identification data
• declaration of the legal representative (either signed with an electronic signature or by signing a holograph)

The issuance of the CES will be done automatically, electronically, after the system validates the request.

Worth noting is also the following:

  • CESs are valid without signature and stamp and their verification can be done through the same platform by series and number;
  • In the event of identifying any suspicions regarding obtaining the CES with the non-observance of the legal provisions or by not certifying the real situation of fact and law, the competent bodies are notified in order to establish the measures;
  • Within 5 days from the publication in the Official Monitor of this order, the Ministry of Economy, Energy and Business Environment will ensure the adaptation and functioning of the platform.
