It is based on the Nature and Ecotourism Accreditation Programme promoted by the Australian Ecotourism Association (NEAP is the first accreditation system in ecotourism) and on Nature’s Best developed by the Swedish Ecotourism Association (the first accreditation system in ecotourism in the northern hemisphere).

Eco Certification

Eco-Romania certification system works only with small scale accommodation facilities from all over Romania. Best practice examples include donations for nature conservation projects, supporting local communities’ culture, creating real benefits for locals or implementing measures to reduce the impact on the environment.

The Ecotourism Certification System addresses two different categories of applicants:

  • ecotourism programmes / tours provided by tour-operators (i.e. eco-tours of maximum 15 participants and at least one overnight),
  • small-scale accommodation structures in rural and natural areas (of maximum 25 rooms / camping places).
  • The certificate is valid for 3 years, but the Certification Committee can also decide to award the ecolabel for just 1,5 years in some cases.
  • Eco-Romania auditing process is done by independent evaluators trained by AER.
