European Electronic Toll Service
The majority of Member States have installed electronic toll systems to finance road infrastructure costs or to collect road usage fees. However, the systems and technologies used are not always interoperable creating barriers to the smooth function of the internal market and the free circulation of good and people within the EU.
Directive 2004/52/EC on the interoperability of electronic road toll systems in the Community seeks to overcome this challenge by establishing an interoperbale European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) system.
The European Commission has just published on-line a series of studies and expert groups reports that have been undertaken over several years within the framework of EETS. All the relevant documents can be found at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/its/studies/eets_en.htm
