Sector inquiry: car insurance market. In January 2014, the Romanian Competition Council has opened a sector inquiry on the car insurance sector with the purpose of analyzing the functioning mechanisms and to identify and correct possible competitive failures. Based on the findings of the sector inquiry, the Romanian Competition Council will be able to substantiate its viewpoint in relation to potential legislative changes in this field. The sector inquiry will focus on mandatory civil liability insurance and optional insurance, as well as the relationship between insurers and car services.
