This article analyses the consultation process and its role in reforming the Romanian penitentiary system. Nowaday, the consultation process is considered an area where innovation and new approaches are most in evidence, involving new groups often ignored. The benefits of consultation are increasingly acknowledged, because it allows the involvement of many stakeholders. In the second part of the paper we analyzed the public consultation practice in Romania, emphasising the necessity of improving the consultation process and the social dialogue by creating a mechanism and developing practices that involve people interested in the consultation process. At the end of the article we have shown the key role of consultation in identifying the penitentiary system issues by means of a questionnaire distributed to the employees and prisoners of the National Penitentiary Agency. At the end, the issues identified allowed us to show the main reform directions in the Romanian penitentiary system.
