The aim of this paper was to present the main aspects related to the situation and prospects of Romanian commerce with live animals. The economic protection aims is to protect the national economy against the foreign competition. This aspect is accomplished by taking into account the tariff means, such as taxes and non-tariff means, like licensing, quota or voluntary export restrictions. The primary objective of any government, regardless of its doctrine aim, is to protect the national economy. The problem is the degree of protection, the protected economic sectors and the instruments employed in order to achieve this purpose. Becoming a member of the European Union, Romania had to adopt laws and regulations regarding European agricultural policy. Concurrently with its adhering to the European Union, Romania has considerably changed its views in commercial politics. Although the concept of free exchange was not completely new to Romania at the time of its adhesion as Romania had previously signed several regional agreements of free commerce, the importance of the phenomenon entailed by its inclusion as a full right member on to the unique market would result in an economic endeavor considerably more significant than the previous regional agreements. In order to meet the requirements of the Single Market has claimed an economic effort, as the employment of the European customs tariff assumed both advantages and disadvantages for the Romanian economy. Therefore, the trade policy regarding agriculture must be fundamentally reconsidered in the light of meeting the requirements of the European Union’s rules and regulations.
