Romania: New professions to be added to the Romanian Profession Classification
The Labour Ministry published for debate a project for the completion of the Order that contains the RPC numbers. The new professions to be included are related to manual labour and require basic study level and no specific training. The normative act offers general information on the professions. For each profession a 6 digit number is assigned. The first digit is an indication of the family of professions and the subsequent digits are indicative of the actual activity. The employers use the RPC as a starting point for the job description for each profession. When the RPC doesn’t classify a specific profession, the employers use the RPC number assigned to the most similar profession. The new Order will be enforced in June 2018.
