Latest amendments to the construction and urbanism legislation

Although the end of 2016 came with major amendments to the legal framework concerning the construction and urbanism legislation by enactment of the Emergency Government Ordinance no. 100/2016 (the "Ordinance"), the Ordinance ceased its effects as of 5 May 2017 when Law no. 86/2017 on the rejection of the Ordinance (the “Rejection Law”) entered into force.

In this respect, as of 5 May 2017, the old provisions of Law no. 50/1991 on constructions authorization and Law no. 350/2001 on landscaping and urban planning (i.e., in the form prior to the Ordinance ) re-entered into force.
