Emergency Ordinance no. 44 (hereinafter "the Ordinance"), published in the Official Journal of Romania (no. 454 of 31 May 2018) provides a three-month postponement of penalties for retailers who have failed to comply with the requirement to introduce cash registers with an electronic log as follows:
The Ordinance also states that the extension by three months until 31 October 2018 also applies to the deadline for the validity of approvals / authorizations for the distribution of fiscal electronic cash registers, with a journal roll.
