Romanian Naval Authority

Romanian Naval Authority (RNA)

is the specialized executive agency subordinated to the Ministry of Transport, playing the role of state authority with the purpose of ensuring safety of navigation.

Romanian Naval Authority is a self-financing institution, with legal personality, located in Constanta Port Enclosure, established by merging the Civil Navigation Inspectorate and the Romanian Register of Shipping. As a result of the merger, RNA took over the rights and obligations of both corporate bodies, which consequently were dissolved.

Romanian Naval Authority exerts its tasks through its own headquarters office, through the harbor master’s offices and technical inspectorates – as operative subsidiaries without legal personality.

The management of the Romanian Naval Authority is ensured by the Managing Board, consisting of 11 members and leaded by a President, whom is also the RNA’s General Director.

Main tasks of the
Romanian Naval Authority have been defined as follows:

inspection, control and surveillance of navigation in Romanian maritime waters and inland waterways;

fulfilment of the obligations assumed from the international agreements and conventions to which Romania is a part;

implementation of international rules, regulations and conventions into Romanian legislation;
