UK notarised documents not recognised in Romania

in Romania

Trade barrier summary

When UK firms are asked to bring notarised documents in "an authentic form" as per Romanian law, in order to conclude a transaction, they must sign this document in front of a civil law notary public (a service provided at the Romanian Embassy/consulate). The process of authentication followed by a UK notary public is neither identical nor equivalent to that of a civil law notary public, and will not be recognised in Romania as such.
