EUROPEAN ELECTRONIC TOLL SERVICE
European electronic toll service
The Directive on the interoperability of electronic road toll systems and facilitating cross-border exchange of information on the failure to pay road fees in the Union 2019/520 defines the requirements for ensuring the aforementioned interoperability, which needs to be achieved with the establishment of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS). Such a service, which supplements the national electronic tolling of member states, ensures interoperability in the whole Community for users of electronic toll systems implemented by member states and for those systems which will be implemented in the future within the framework of this Directive.
The implementation of EETS is further defined in the Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/203 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/204 of 28. 11. 2019. Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/204 in Article 3 defines the minimum requirements of the EETS Domain Statement and at least the elements from Annex II to this Implementing Regulation.
Based on the concession contract for managing and maintaining motorways in the Republic of Slovenia, concluded between DARS d.d. and the Republic of Slovenia on 29. 4. 2004, DARS d.d. is a toll charger as defined in the Directive. The new tolling DarsGo system, for vehicles whose maximum permissible weight exceeds 3,500 kg, which was implemented on 1. 4. 2018, is technologically compliant with the requirements of the Directive. The data on the toll system, which is being managed and maintained by DARS d.d., as well as the requirements for including EETS providers, is published in the DARS EETS Domain Statement.
