I. EDITORIAL – SIMPLIFICATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES REGARDING VEHICLE REGISTRATION

As usual, August was a month of a slow month for legislators. However, we highlight the Decree-law no. 111/2019 of 16 August, which amended the legal regime of vehicle registration, the Decree-law no. 54/75 of 12 February, which approved by its turn the corresponding rules of procedure, the Decree-law no. 178 -A/2005 of 28 October. It was approved the model of a Single Automobile Document, special exemptions in vehicle registration and a new model for specific proceedings. 

The month of August was also marked by the Law no. 59/2019 of 8 August, approving certain rules for personal data processing for purposes of prevention, detention, inquiry or penalization of violations or execution of criminal penalties, by implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/680 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016. 

Regarding the case-law, iis important to notice that the Judgment of Supreme Administrative Court of 11.07.2019, in Case-law no. 02083/18.8BELRSwhich decides about terms and procedures such as “derogation of banking secrecy” as well as “tax domicile”.  

Accordingly, about the banking secrecy, it is considered that the banking elements holder that never changed his tax domicile to an foreign one, declared as the resident, could not rely on unlawfulness , unless the administrative decision is regarding the derogation of banking secrecy, based on the fact that he is non-resident citizen, contesting that those tax period settlements, proving that his usual residence is in a foreign country. 

Finally, we would like to mention that, it was approved in the Council of Ministers, the legal framework for education given by distance network learning.
