WHICH MARITIME SPATIAL PLANS EXIST?
There is currently no national legally binding Maritime Spatial Plan in Romania. Nevertheless, main advances in MSP have been achieved through several European projects in which Romania has been involved, such as MARSPLAN BS I and II.
It should also be noted that Romania has been highly active in the field of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM). One regional (undertaken in the scope of the PlanCoast project) and four local MSPs were finalised before 2014 under the ICZM principle (national law).
Romania transposed Directive 2014/89/EU of the European Parliament into national legislation through Law no. 88/2017 related to the approval of Government Ordinance no. 18/2016 on maritime spatial planning.
NATIONAL MSP AUTHORITY
Since 2015, the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration, has been the Competent Authority responsible for preparing national legislation and rules on MSP, nominating MSP authorities and implementing the MSP Directive.
