European Electronic Toll Service (EETS)

The European Electronic Toll Service – or EETS for short – is designed to simplify toll payments within the EU in the future.

The European Electronic Toll Service  is designed to enable the payment of tolls through a single contract, a single EETS provider and a single vehicle device (OBU - On Board Unit) throughout the European Union.

Toll customers can enter into a contract with an EETS provider of their choice. The EETS providers pay the toll to the toll chargers, who in turn invoice their customers.

The basics of a European Electronic Toll Service are laid down in a directive. According to the directive, the European toll operators must implement the European toll service for vehicles over 3.5 tons maximum permissible weight (mpw) within three years and for all other vehicles within five years, if the toll service is an electronic toll system.

Directive 2004/52/EC from 29 April 2004 on the interoperability of electronic road toll systems in the European Union and the decision of the European Commission 2009/750/EC from 6 October 2009 on the definition of the European electronic toll service and its technical elements form the foundation for the introduction of the EETS in the EETS areas of the member states.

According to the decision, each toll charger is obligated to draw up specifications for the EETS area, which include the general conditions for the acceptance of an EETS provider.

The specifications for the EETS area are exclusively aimed at EETS providers within the meaning of the decision of the European Commission, 2009/750/EC. Meeting the requirements laid out in this document forms the basis of a contract conclusion for an EETS provider in the EETS area of ASFINAG.

ASFINAG has carefully compiled the information on the specifications for the EETS area in the annexes. However, no liability is assumed for their correctness and completeness.

ASFINAG reserves the right to change the annexes at any time and without prior notice or notification.
