Registration details can be found in the TLD reference chart.
There are no local presence requirements for this TLD, but the registrant contact must provide additional information in order to register a .RO domain.
Individuals registering a .RO domain must provide their ID card number. This is a 13 digit number for those living in Romania and if the contact is from Romania, this field will be checked for syntax. To confirm syntax, please see this article on the Romanian ID Card.
Businesses registering a .RO domain must provide their business registration number as well as their VAT or tax number. VAT numbers can be checked for syntax here.
