Do the Romanian authorities encounter any difficulties is responding to queries about doctors </li></ul><ul><li>The overwhelming majority of questions have been addressed to Romanian competent authorities, which is evident from the trend of migration (doctors leaving Romania, insignificant number of people who come to work temporarily, exceptionally rare to establish for good). </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-defined questions are clear and easy to understand. </li></ul><ul><li>Free text questions should contain sufficient data to formulate a response within a given deadline. </li></ul><ul><li>The need o received copies of the relevant documents as attached files. </li></ul><ul><li>Predefined answers are clear. </li></ul><ul><li>Comments entered are able to provide further details. </li></ul><ul><li>In most cases (with one or two exceptions, due to lack of user in the country) we have responded within the agreed time. </li></ul><ul><li>In its actual format, the IMI system is easy to use </li></ul><ul><li>In some rare cases IMI gives some errors when loading the pages.or loads slowly the pages. </li></ul>
