  Abstract:  In Romania, the first attempts to standardize the methods of hazard mapping in general and landslides risk maps in particular were done by Benga et al. (1997; GT006-97) and Dobre et al. (1998; GT019-98). The Government Decision no. 382/2003 (Anonymous 2003a) presented the methodological regulations regarding the requirements for the documentation of the territory arrangement and urbanism in the areas subject for natural risks. Landslide risks is a relevant one for all European Countries. Chacon et al. (2006) showed that the landslides inventory during the 2000s covered between 0 and 25% of the entire surface of Europe. It is estimated that almost one third of the Romanian territory is affected by landslides, and their study and recording is still precarious.

Key words: hazard map, landslide, risk elements, vulnerability
