Summary/Abstract: The precautionary principle was founded on the necessity of preventing the negative effects for the environment determined by different human activities and was drawn from the preventing principle but nowadays it is independent. Enacting this principle means both actions on the causes producing pollution or degradation, as well as activities limiting the destructive or harmful effects for the environment. Therefore, there is an obligation to consider the demands for protecting the environment, on any private or public action occasion, risking having an impact on the quality of the environmental factors. Considering the fact that solid economic development implying technological decisions is founded on evaluation studies on the impact of human activities on the internal and international environment, as well as specific procedures of authorization led by national authorities for environmental protection, this principle acquires an exceptional importance.
