This section provides more detailed information on the governance and activities of the EFP.
The EFP and its members initiate and coordinate activities aiming at the facilitation and deployment of EETS in Europe. The EFP is an initiative of European interest and the European Commission has declared to support these activities.
Generally, the EFP greatly benefits from the broad experience among its members and the various formats to share and discuss up-to-date information on EETS-related topics.
The membership of the EFP consists of toll chargers and toll charger associations, member states, EETS Providers and Service Providers, and ASECAP and AETIS.
The EFP Secretariat is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the EFP and is run by a member of the EFP.
Martina Hamele from ASFINAG Maut Service GmbH has been appointed new Secretary-General of the EETS Facilitation Platform (EFP), taking over from Stefan Zleptnig. Her contact details can be found below.
