EETS European Electronic Toll Service
The abbreviation EETS stands for European Electronic Toll Service. It is a service that enables the payment of tolls with a single contract at a single EETS provider and just one on-board unit throughout the European Union. Toll customers can conclude a contract with an EETS provider of their choice. The EETS providers pay the toll charger the tolls charged and in turn charge these tolls to their customers.
The principles for a European electronic toll service are laid out in a Directive. This Directive provides that the European toll operators implement the European Toll Service for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes maximum permissible weight (MPW) within three years and for all other vehicles within five years, where the toll services concern an electronic toll system.
Directive 2004/52/EC of 29 April 2004 on the Interoperability of Electronic Toll Systems in the European Union and European Commission Decision 2009/750/EC of 6 October 2009 on the definition of the European Electronic Toll Service and its technical elements form the prerequisites for introducing EETS in the EETS areas of the Member States.
According to the EETS Decision every Toll Charger has to prepare and publish an EETS Domain Statement, in which he describes the gerneral conditions for acceptance of an EETS Provider in his Toll Domain.
The EETS Domain Statement is intended solely for EETS Providers in the context of the EETS Decision of the European Commission 2009/750/EC. Fulfilment of the requirements listed below forms the basis for concluding a contract as an EETS Provider in the EETS Domain of ASFINAG.
