Romania's Anti- Discrimination Law Amended

18 May 2007

On 14 July 2006, the Romanian government adopted a law amending Ordinance No. 137/ 2000; the Romanian Government Ordinance on Preventing and Punishing All Forms of Discrimination. The recent amendments bring long awaited revision to antidiscrimination legislation in Romania. With the amendment, Romanian lawmakers have removed the National Council for Combating Discrimination (NCCD), long noted for lacking the independence required to be effective, from the supervision of the Government, placing it under parliamentary supervision. The amendment also extended the deadline for filing a complaint before Council from six months to one year from the date of cause of the action. Under the amended law, a victim of discrimination no longer has to go to the NCCD before going to courts. The NCCD was also obliged under the amended law to elaborate an internal procedure for investigating complaints of discrimination and a national strategy for the implementation of measures aimed at preventing and combating discrimination within sixty days from the date of entering into force of the new law.
