French Eurotaxe open for registration

  • 25 July 2013
  • By Chris Druce

The organisation administering the French Eurotaxe has opened for registrations for operators wishing to pay for it via one of the scheme’s recognised electronic toll system companies.

Daniele Meini, CEO of Ecomouv the Eurotaxe administrator said:  “I confirm that Ecomouv is ready to start vehicles registrations operations.

“This first phase has been made possible by the efficient co-operation between Ecomouv and the six partner [toll system companies] it works with so far: AXXES, DKV, Eurotoll, RESSA, TELEPASS and Total.

“I therefore invite users liable for tax who wish to subscribe to take their first step towards compliance today by approaching one [of these providers].”

The new environmental truck tax, applicable to goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, will be levied on some 15,000km of national roads and autoroutes, both free and toll.

It’s expected to affect nearly 250,000 non-French vehicles annually, and the only exemption likely to benefit some UK operators is for certain agricultural goods.

It went live with a month-long trial commencing on 20 June in Alsace, and has now been rolled out to the rest of France. It will be enforced by 174 fixed gantries and 500 mobile detectors.

Operators are required to have a GPS-based On-Board Unit fitted to their vehicle, together with an agreed payment method, with either pre or post-paid options available.

The charge will be based on €0.12/km, but with final costs dependent on gross weight, number of axles, emissions class and distance travelled.
