Romania unveils new Point of Single Contact

03/11/2016

Last month, Romania unveiled an overhauled Point of Single Contact portal. The PSC site was relaunched, six years after the launch of the original site.

“After six years, the platform modified its interface, to be more accessible and friendly to users”, the government said in a statement, adding that “all Ministries benefited from training and are at an advanced stage regarding the designation of administrators and operators, finalisation of accounts and publication of information.”

The new portal was unveiled at a meeting organised by the Agency for Digital Agenda of Romania, which manages the portal. The agency had organised a workshop to show government representatives how to publish on and manage the portal, and how to use it to communicate and interact with citizens.

PSCs are meant to help companies to seize business opportunities in the EU Single Market. The eGovernment portals are to provide companies with information on administrative requirements and access to electronic procedures.

Last summer, in an evaluation study commissioned by the European Commission, Romania’s PSC was rated as a poor performer in terms of useability, along with PSCs in Germany and Belgium. The study also recommended that Romania improve the portal’s information structure.
