The times are changing. We find ourselves in a digital era where everything is connected. At a worldwide level the industry of telecommunications has never been more important.
In Romania the telecommunication environment is almost exclusively private. This industry may lead to a growth of GDP and is a huge advantage for Romania. Supplying networks and electronic communications services is performed under the general authorization regime adopted by the regulatory authority, the legal regime that establishes the rights and obligations of providers of networks and electronic communications services in Romania.
Setting up a telecommunication company follows the same steps as any other company in Romania. Firstly, you should register the company with the local Trade Register. The specific NACE Codes for this type of activity are: 6110 – Telecommuncation activities through cable, 6120 – Telecommunication actitvities without cable, 6190 – Other telecommunications’ activities, etc.
O.U.G. (The Government Urgency Ordinance) no. 111/2011 regarding telecommunication services is the regulatory act in this field. According to this,
any person intending to provide public networks of electronic communications or electronic communications services to the public, shall submit to the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications, hereinafter referred to as ANCOM, a notice of such an intention, at the latest, on the starting date of the activity.
Attached to this notifcation the applicant must send to ANCOM the certificate of registration from the Trade Registry, the power of attorney for the person who shall the submit the notification and the description sheet for the services and networks.
