A single contract, single payment, single On-Board unit in the whole European Union. The European Electronic Toll Service will make crossing the borders and payment system simpler.
The purpose of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) is to simplify the goods transport within the European Union. The EETS Service will enable the toll payment in all toll domains of the European Union through a single contract with a single EETS Provider and a single On-Board Unit. The persons interested in the EETS service may enter into a contract with any EETS Provider, who will settle the liabilities of their customers towards Toll Chargers in particular countries and will invoice the aggregate price for the provided services to their customers subsequently.
The EETS principles follow the Directive of the European Commission, based on which the toll chargers in particular countries should implement the European Electronic Toll Service for goods transport and buses over 3.5 tonnes gradually in order to provide the interoperability of toll collection within the European Union countries where the toll is collected electronically.
On the basis of the European Commission Decision every toll office is obliged to prepare and publish the EETS Toll Domain Statement, which the basic condition of functioning for the EETS Provider in the particular toll domain will be described in. The EETS Toll Domain Statement is designated solely for the EETS Providers in the context with the EETS European Commission Decision 2009/750/EC. Meeting of prerequisites specified in the EETS Toll Domain Statement forms a supporting document for a future agreement by and between the EETS Provider and National Motorway Company (Národná diaľničná spoločnosť, a.s.).
