EUROPEAN ELECTRONIC TOLL SERVICE
European electronic toll service
Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council no. 2004/52 / EC of 29 April 2004 on the interoperability of electronic road toll systems in the Community stipulates the necessary conditions to ensure said interoperability, to be achieved by the establishment of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS). This service, which complements the national electronic toll collection systems of the Member States, ensures interoperability throughout the Community for users of electronic toll systems introduced by Member States and for those that will be introduced in the future within the framework of this Directive.
The Commission Decision No. 2009/750 / EC of 6 October 2009 on the definition of the European Electronic Toll Service and its technical elements further defines the introduction of the EETS in more detail. Having regard to Article 5 of this Decision each Toll charger shall develop and maintain an EETS domain statement setting out the general conditions for EETS providers for accessing their toll domains in accordance with conditions laid down in Directive 2004/52 / EC and Decision 2009/750 / EC.
DARS d.d. has the status of a toll charger as defined in the Directive 2004/52 / EC and the Decision 2009/750 / EC on the basis of the Concession contract for the management and maintenance of motorways in the Republic of Slovenia, concluded on 29.04.2004 with the Republic of Slovenia. The new DarsGo for tolling system vehicles with maximum permissible weight exceeding 3,500 kg, launching on 1 April 2018, is technologically compliant with the requirements of the Directive and the Decision. Data on the tolling system is operated and maintained by DARS d.d., as well as conditions for the inclusion of EETS providers into the DarsGo system are published in the EETS domain statement for DARS.
