About REETSREETS project is intended to support the existing European Union’s legislation on the interoperability of electronic road tolls’ collection and, in this framework, the project aims at deploying EETS compliant services in a cross-border regional area, including the following seven Member States: Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain, as well as Switzerland (the latter without EU co-financing).
- Reduce barriers for EETS deployment by reducing business uncertainty for EETS providers in order to prevent potential market failure of European Electronic Toll Collection services;
- Create a basis for easing the bilateral negotiations between Toll Chargers and EETS-Providers;
- Develop a common understanding of the service components provided by the different roles;
- Demonstrate in practice how EETS can be deployed and operated cross-border based on interfacing the different environments on the results from the work packages;
- Provide a REETS information/dissemination basis (return on experience);
- Provide an EETS information platform as a basis for rolling out EETS all across Europe (return on experience);
- Finding risk management rules mutually acceptable by the parties.
Basically REETS project will be deployed in two main phases:
- an analytical phase, in which contractual, procedural and technical issues will be dealt with, with the objective of developing recommendations and solution able to ease the future introduction of EETS for a prospective full EU coverage;
- a monitoring phase, with the implementation of an open EETS Information Sharing Resource Platform on the gained experience, accompanied with the monitoring and the coordination of pilot demonstrations related to EETS compliant services covering several participating Member States.

The project consortium is composed by the major Toll Chargers and Toll Charger Associations of the participant Member States (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and Switzerland), as well as by the future potential EETS providers represented by the Association of European Toll and Interoperable Services AETIS.
The project is run by the Project Leader (Mr. Hubert Resch from ASFINAG, Austria), who chairs the Project Management Team together with Mr. Dionelis, Secretary-General of ASECAP; all the decisions are taken by a REETS Steering Committee, chaired by the ASECAP President, in which high level representatives from each project partner are present.
