Romania regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. The Ministry of Administration and Interior, the police, the Prosecutor's Office and the Superior Council of Magistracy collect hate crime data.
In 2016, Romania implemented ODIHR's Training Against Hate Crimes for Law Enforcement (TAHCLE) Programme. A specialized hate crime unit was created in the Romanian Police in 2021.

About 2013 Data
Data reported to ODIHR refer mostly to hate speech offences and criminal discrimination, which fall outside of the scope of OSCE hate crime definition.
Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR observes that Romania’s law enforcement agencies have not recorded the bias motivations of hate crimes.
The Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson‑in‑Office on combating anti-Semitism conducted a country visit to Romania. Following the visit, the Personal Representative presented his recommendations, which focused on hate crime training of police and prosecutors.
