BroBizz gets a seal of approval in the rest of Europe

BroBizz A/S has just been registered as an EETS issuer, as the first company in Scandinavia.

The registration is an important step for BroBizz A/S in order to be able to offer a service in the future that is an attractive and natural choice for regional customers, who want to move around Europe.

The approval specifically means that BroBizz A/S now formally has the right to enter into dialogue with all EU countries to gain access for payment by BroBizz® on infrastructure facilities, which are subject to the EETS provisions.

“Registration is a seal of approval of our business and a major milestone for us. We can now enter into a dialogue with many European countries about using BroBizz, which in the long run will bring us closer to the goal of our customers being able to use BroBizz throughout Europe,” says Helle Bech, CEO of BroBizz A/S.

Facts about EETS

The Commission’s purpose, via the so-called European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) directive, is that an electronic transmitter, for example, a BroBizz, must be used for payment on all toll roads in the EU. It will make it easier for road users who will only need to enter into an agreement with one issuer, for instance, BroBizz A/S, to charge usage from payment systems in the EU.

The directive should have entered into force in 2012, but it has proven more complicated to implement than first expected, because there must agreement on common standards, settlement methods, etc., before the directive’s purpose can be realised.

The Danish Road Directorate is the approval authority in Denmark and they have approved BroBizz A/S’ EETS application. There are currently only four other registered active EETS issuers today; three French and one Italian.
