The Occupations classification from Romania (C.O.R.) has been adopted in 1995. Since then it suffered some modifications and completions. For the hotels and the restaurants sector, a special interest is given by the completions brought by the Mandate no. 149/2006. Positions and the base callings were established in 1995. This way there has been established denominations such as "hotel reception chief", "hotel receptionist", "concierge", "executive/supervisor housekeeper" and "chamber maid"; "executive chef", "cook", "head waiter (maître d'hôtel)" and "waiter". Subsequently were added other positions and vocations such as "hotel director", "rooms division manager", "restaurant director", "sommelier" and "hotel animator". Still, in the professional language we register some other positions, such as revenue manager, front office manager, night auditor, porter and host/hostess. Even if the agreement was that in the work book can be registered only the positions and vocations provided from the O.C.R., in practice, for the operational necessities - the badge, the elaboration of the job description, etc. - for each and every occupation there could and can be used the known formula, probably in English or, preferably, in Romanian. Most of the English denominations find an appropriate translation in Romanian language. Furthermore, by various measures taken especially by the professional associations from the domain which were, in accordance with all the categories of constructions, the future modification and completion of C.O.R. can be obtained.
