Latest Transport, Telecommunications & Energy Council on Transport
7-8 June 2018, Luxembourg

Outcome of the Council meeting (press release)

During the Council meeting, ministers adopted a general approach about the draft Directive on the interoperability of electronic road toll systems and facilitating cross-border exchange of information on the failure to pay road fees. EU countries want to make it easier to trace owners of foreign vehicles that fail to pay road tolls by granting each other access to national vehicle registration data. The Council today adopted a general approach on updated electronic road tolling rules which include a legal basis for such information sharing. The possible administrative or legal consequences will depend on the national law of the country where the failure to pay a road fee took place.

The draft directive will also improve the interoperability of electronic tolling systems across Europe by removing administrative barriers, such as local technical specifications, and by giving electronic tolling providers easier access to the toll collection market. The aim is that road users could travel across the EU and pay their electronic tolls with one on-board unit, one contract and one invoice.

In its general approach, the Council has strengthened and clarified the provisions on data protection. The new measures would be applicable 30 months after the entry into force of the directive. The draft directive must be approved by both the Council and the European Parliament before it can enter into force.
