Welcome to AETIS

AETIS – the Association of Electronic Toll and Interoperable Service – was founded as a non-profit making association by nine European companies specialized in the payment of tolling (card and OBU issuing) and fuelling in the European region. Its main goal is to represent the interests of its members as regards the definition, rights and obligations of the EETS Providers and national toll service providers offering EETS services as outlined within Directive 2004/52/EC, Decision 2009/750/EC and any further EU legislation. AETIS now gathers 16 members.

Considering the continued growth of the international transport traffic and the arising need of interoperability of tolling services on the entire European Union road network, the European Commission has defined the conditions of a European Electronic Toll Service as well as the three main stakeholders’ roles:

  • Toll Chargers in charge of collecting tolls as taxes or concession fees or duties;
  • Service Users who are using tolled infrastructures and liable for tolls;
  • EETS Providers who are ensuring interoperability to pay tolls within the European network, by providing a single On-Board Equipment and a single contract to the User.

When the European Commission published its proposal, the Toll Chargers and Service Users roles already existed and had their own representations (ASECAP, IRU) vis-à-vis the EU institutions. The role of EETS Provider was new and therefore parties interested in providing that role decided to found their own representation group: AETIS.

AETIS contributes to the development of the EU EETS framework and promotes initiatives and decisions aimed at implementing this framework in the EU Member States. In that context, the Association and its members:

  • exchange expertise and know-how;
  • participate in the European Commission actions
  • dialogue with the European institutions (e.g. European Parliament and Council) and the Member States;
  • interact with other stakeholder representatives (ASECAP, IRU, etc.);
  • define the EETS contractual framework;
  • review and follow up the EETS Directive Application Guide;
  • support all legal actions and lobbying in scope of such activities;
  • set up and follow up the EETS organization;
  • review and contribute to the definition of norms, interface and any technical issue related to EETS;
  • follow-up the national application of Directive 2004/52/EC, Decision 2009/750/EC, Directive (EU) 2019/520, the related Implementing and Delegated Regulations, as well as any related legislation.

AETIS participates in the EETS Facilitation Platform and is a member of the European Commission expert group on electronic tolls.

The work of the Association is strictly in line with anti-competition rules, discussions or exchanges of (commercially) sensitive information amongst AETIS members are explicitly excluded.
