With the Road Toll Reform as described in Report No. 25 to the Storting (2014–2015), the role as AutoPASS service provider is clarified and made independent of Norwegian toll road companies.

The purpose of the new arrangement is to avoid cross-subsidising and to facilitate increased efficiency, usability and service development in the Norwegian toll road domain.

The Toll service provider Regulation states that any company or other legal entity that meets the given requirements for approval will be granted the right to conclude agreements with Norwegian toll chargers (toll road companies or ferry operators). The new regulation entered into force 1 January 2019. See Utstederforskriften (Lovdata) or Toll service provider Regulation. Unofficial English translation (PDF)

In 2018, NOK 11 billion were collected on Norwegian toll roads through 62 road toll projects. The toll revenues stem from approximately 656 million toll transactions, and 78,7% of these transactions are collected through toll service provider arrangements. The user agreement between the toll service provider and an end user gives the end user benefits such as discounted toll rates, one-hour rule, monthly ceiling and one bill for all toll transactions.

The Ministry of Transport and Communication sets the rates for the remuneration. Currently the rate is 1.75 % of the toll transaction amount.

13.04.2021 - English versions of annexes 2B and 2C are published.

25.02.2021 - Updated version of the Domain statement with annexes is published. Annexes 2B and 2C are currently in Norwegian only. English versions will be published later.

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.
