Status of ratification

No. Ratification is not expected until 2018. There are currently two issues being discussed that are slowing the ratification process:
1. Transitory application of the UPCA
2. Compatibility between national lawyers or judges that will be part-time UPC judges.

Local or Regional CFI 

Still not confirmed. There is a proposal that Romania may set up a regional division with Bulgaria, Cyprus and Greece, with the headquarters being in Bucharest. Romania is still considering other member states for forming a regional division. Therefore a final decision is still to be made.
