Romania: Unregistered SIM cards come to an end by the 1st of January in 2020

The Romanian government decided in its meeting yesterday to ban the sale of prepaid SIM cards without the display of an ID card, a measure that will take effect on January 1, 2020.

In the case of cards that have already been purchased, holders should register with mobile telephony systems before September 1 2020, since, after that date, the cards whose holders have not identified their personal information will not work.

To this end, the Romanian authorities and telephone providers will carry out a related information campaign from 1 January to 1 September 2020.

This measure was deemed necessary by the authorities to strengthen the fight against organized crime and terrorist organizations. /ibna
