The paper presents the results of classifications of beef carcasses from 2008 in Romania, reported to Romanian Commission of Pork, Beef and Sheep Carcasses Grading – CCC “EUROP” from the whole Romania, per total and per animal categories without differences, considering only the quality classes and subclasses. The qualitative level of beef carcasses in Romania is extremely low, and most livestock could be classified in the inferior quality classes in terms of conformation and fat deposits as well, according to EUROP system. However, Romania has a great agricultural potential for beef breeding, and the present situation can be changed in better one, based by concrete support from Romania Comission and European Union.
