EETS - the European Electronic Tolling Service is a service being introduced as a result of EC Directive 2004/52 . The service will allow drivers who wish to do so to drive on a wide range of tolled infrastructure across Europe using a single payment account and one piece of electronic equipment.
The service will be offered to drivers by private sector service providers (EETS providers). The Directive requires Member states to ensure that tolled undertakings within the scope of the Directive are in a position to allow EETS providers to operate on their infrastructure by October 2012 for heavy goods vehicles and October 2014 for all vehicles.
EETS does not require the introduction of any new tolls or changes to existing tolls. EETS providers may choose to charge their customers for their service but that would be a decision for them. EETS will not be compulsory for any driver.
The details of EETS are set out in a Commission Decision 2009/750 . Its provisions include a requirement that Member States publish a register of tolled undertakings which will fall within the scope of EETS and will therefore need to offer the option of payment through the Service.
It has been determined that the European legislation currently applies to three undertakings within the UK - the crossings at Dartford and Severn and the M6 Toll Road.
