As of 1 January 2014, oil-related tax and reporting obligations have been amended, as follows:
A new Environmental Fund contribution will be applied as of 2017 for the disposal of inert and non-hazardous waste in landfill sites. This landfill tax will be RON 80 /tonne in 2017 and RON 120 /tonne as of 2018.

Companies which introduce oils on mineral base, semi-synthetic oils or synthetic oils, with or without additional components, onto the market have to pay a contribution of RON 0.3 /kg. Contributions for inert and non-hazardous waste disposed of in landfill sites will be applied as of 2017.
