Carriers May Request On-Board Units for Tolling Purposes
The owners of heavy-duty vehicles over 3.5 tonnes can now begin preparing for on-board equipment for the purposes of the upcoming toll charging.
One of the two national service providers that have signed contracts under the new RIA General Terms and Conditions – Intelligent Traffic Systems AD, has successfully completed end-to-end integration tests for interoperability with the electronic toll collection system, operated and maintained by the RIA. This enables the company to pre-register for the fleet equipment of carriers with on-board units, as well as to start preparations for contracting with them. They will enter into force when the toll system for commercial vehicles over 3.5 tonnes is put into operation.
The integration tests of the interoperability procedure with the other national service provider, that has signed contracts under the new RIA General Terms and Conditions – Concord Smart Infrastructure AD, are scheduled for today.
The other two registered national service providers Teletoll AD and Icom OOD have not yet signed contracts under the new RIA General Terms and Conditions. The Teletoll Company has a contract with RIA to provide toll services under the RIA General Terms and Conditions, effective until 29 November 2019. However, the changes in the conditions are yet to be confirmed. Icom OOD must provide additional documents for the conclusion of a contract. After the signing of the contracts, both companies will be able to enter the procedure for integration with the RIA system.
The procedure for demonstrating interoperability for the needs of the toll system consists of three stages. The first involves conformity assessment and examination of the admissibility of the documents submitted. The second stage involves end-to-end integration tests, and the third stage - end-to-end applied tests with on-board devices that will function in a real working environment.
