What is EETS?

EETS, the abbreviation for European Electronic Toll Service, was first introduced in the EETS Directive 2004/52/EC.

The basic idea of EETS is to enable a simple and border-free tolling service all over Europe. 


According to the EETS Directive the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) means the toll service provided under a contract on one or more EETS domains by an EETS provider to an EETS user.

Moreover EETS shall ensure the interoperability of electronic road toll systems on the entire Union road network, urban and interurban motorways, major and minor roads, and various structures, such as tunnels or bridges, and ferries; and it shall facilitate the cross-border exchange of vehicle registration data regarding the vehicles and the owners or holders of vehicles for which there was a failure to pay road fees of any kind in the Union.
