In detail

ANAF Order No. 3236/2018 approves a new registration procedure for economic operators performing wholesale or retail sales of energy products (gasoline, diesel, lamp oil, liquefied petroleum gas and biofuels) on the Romanian market.

Economic operators holding certificates issued on the basis of ANAF Order No. 1849/2016 intending to continue performing wholesale or retail sales of energy products (gasoline, diesel, lamp oil, liquefied petroleum gas and biofuels) have to register at the territorial customs authority to obtain new certificates, as the old ones will become invalid as of 1 February 2019.

It is also important to note that, according to the new Order, the following categories of economic operators may obtain wholesale certificates without fulfilling the conditions requiring them to have storage facilities:

  • Those which sell energy products based on fuel cards to end-users;
  • Affiliates of economic operators authorised as excise warehouse-keepers, registered consignees and economic operators holding certificates for wholesale of energy products which sell such products from the authorised locations of the economic operators to which they are affiliated.
