Reforming the civil law will have repercussions on the institution of acquisitive prescription under several aspects. If we refer only to the period of the acquisitive prescription, we find that the new Civil Code takes many elements from the current legislation related to the beginning and end of the period of acquisitive prescription, to the suspension and discontinuation of this period, but also brings a number of new elements. It is obvious that in this matter we will take into account in the future both the current legislation and the new one, to each acquisitive prescription being applicable the law that was in force at the beginning of the period. All matters relating to the acquisitive prescription period could not be discussed in a few pages of an article. Therefore, we will discuss only a small part of them, namely those concerning the discontinuation of the acquisitive prescription period. We will put together in this article the present and future, the old and new, the current (soon to be "old") and the new with yet practical implications for a long time.
