25.02.2021 - Toll chargers will no longer be responsible for AutoPASS agreements. This is a consequence of the Norwegian road
toll reform that was adopted by the Storting in 2015. These companies will continue to be responsible for financing road projects
through road tolls, as well as for the procurement and operation of toll collection equipment at toll stations.
AutoPASS agreements will now be the responsibility of toll service providers. Their main task is to handle AutoPASS agreements,
toll tag distribution and the invoicing of toll transactions for vehicles that have toll tags.
The toll chargers will be responsible for customers who do not have AutoPASS agreements, and for managing all exemption schemes.
The appeals body for users is the toll chargers, not the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, cf. the Toll Service Provider Regulations (TSPR) (PDF).
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration in the process of approving toll service providers. The deadline for separating
toll service provision from current toll chargers is 31 December 2021.
