The issue of ethics and integrity in public office in Romania can be analyzed in the light of three main components which are regulated by the national law: the conflict of interests, incompatibilities and the conduct of public servants. The conflict of interests and incompatibilities are regulated under Law No. 161/2003, subsequently amended and supplemented, regarding certain measures for ensuring transparency in the exercise of public dignities, of public functions and in business, of preventing and punishing corruption. The legal framework regulating the rules of conduct for civil servants is represented by Law no. 7/2004, which has been republished, and which regards The Conduct Code of Civil Servants. The National Integrity Agency has been created in order to ensure the exercise of public functions and commissions in conditions of impartiality, integrity, transparency, by organizing uniformly the activity of controlling the assets acquired during the exercise of their mandate or commissions, as well as the examination of the conflict of interests and the observation of incompatibilities. The conflict of interests represents a situation in which the person exercising a public office or a public commission has a personal interest of financial nature which might have an influence on the objective fulfillment of the responsibilities that person holds according to the Constitution and other laws.
