The Federation was set up by the order of Ministry of Youth, functioning inside the Department Sports for All. In 1992 Romania was represented at the first Paralympic Games for people with mental handicap in Madrid, Spain. Their participation realised 23 medals – 10 gold medals, 6 silver medals, 7 bronze medals on athletics, soccer, swimming, table tennis.

In 2001 by the application of the 69/2000 law, our Federation along with other national sport federations acquired private rights and public utility and the name changed to: the Romanian Sport Federation For Disabled People (FRSPH). In 2009 the Federation became the National Paralympic Committee, Romania.
