EAEU countries should switch to a single system of electronic vehicle passports by November 1, 2019

EAEU countries should switch to a single system of electronic vehicle passports by November 1, 2019

This was stated by the Heads of relevant government agencies of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) countries at the meeting chaired by the Member of the Board – Minister in charge of Technical Regulation of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Viktor Nazarenko, which was held in the EEC.
“In accordance with the Agreement on Introduction of Single Forms of Vehicle Passports, a full-fledged use of the relevant system will begin when all the EAEU participants will ensure the registration of e-passports (PTS) and the possibility of their use when registering vehicles in their national segments”, the EEC Minister noted.
Nowadays the Russian side shows the greatest readiness to use electronic PTS and has completed almost all procedures. The system administrator “Electronic Passport”, JSC informed that the Russian system segment would be able to issue 170 thousand vehicle passports per month by December of this year. In Russia, authorized state authorities as well as car manufacturers and their official representatives will start issuing only e-passports starting from November 2019. In general, the Union market of new vehicles is more than 2.3 million cars per year.
At the same time, it was stressed that e-passports will be introduced in the EAEU countries without serious consequences for car owners. They will be able to use paper PTS as much as they see fit, until they want to change for electronic vehicle passports, lose their old documents or until their cars are disposed of. New passports will be issued in e-form. Following the results of the meeting, the state authorities agreed to monitor the readiness of national e-passport systems for launch in the Member States with the involvement of the Commission on a monthly basis. This is required to better understand the parties’ capabilities to switch to the electronic PTS. A full-fledged transition to vehicle e-passports will simplify the mutual movement of vehicles, registration procedures for citizens, allow the system participants to monitor the machinery lifecycle and state agencies – to use reliable databases of a single format in all EAEU countries.
