Abstract: Under the Romanian legal system there are no specific regulations concerning transsexualism, nor are clear medical, administrative or judicial procedures configured. However, without any doubt, the medical transition to the gender with which a trans person identifies him/herself is allowed, as well as the legal recognition of the new sexual identity. If a trans person obtained a favourable judicial decision, based on which the necessary changes have been made in the civil status acts, being issued a new identity card, then, in principle that person can prevail him/herself of the legal consequences of his/her new identity, in all areas of social life. Regarding the coverage by the public health insurance system of treatments and operations for gender reattribution, there is no convergent point of view of competent institutions.

Keywords: the civil status, transsexual person, transgender person, medical transition, the modification of the acts of civil status, the right of a natural person to self-determination
