UAE: Up to Dh5,000 fine for owners of some vehicles who fail to register in tracking system before October 30
The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security
called on owners of means of transporting goods and trucks registered in the
United Arab Emirates to register in the Electronic National System for Tracking
Trucks and Shipments during the approved registration period, which ends on
October 30, 2023.
Major General Suhail Saeed Al Khaili, Director General of the Authority, said
that the National System for Tracking Trucks and Shipments is one of the latest
customs projects aimed at supporting the customs security system in the country,
facilitating trade movement and raising the level of security and road safety by
monitoring the movement of trucks and shipments in the country from the first
port of entry until it reaches its final destination in the country through
electronic tracking devices that are installed on shipments and trucks at the
country's ports, allowing monitoring of its movement around the clock.
The application of the National System for Tracking Trucks and Shipments is
within the framework of the Authority’s plan to support the system of customs
control over the movement of trucks and shipments, ensure their safe arrival at
the set time, and monitor violations and abuses that may occur, which include:
- Hazardous materials transport trucks.
- Restricted material transport trucks.
- Goods with high customs duties transport trucks.
Al Khaili added that the Authority was keen to provide facilitations for the
owners of means of transporting goods registered in the country by giving them a
period to settle their conditions and register, provided that the period ends on
October 30, 2023, as administrative financial fines will be applied to those who
fail to register during the prescribed period in accordance with the regulations
and decisions approved in this regard. This fine will be by one thousand dirhams
for the first month, and one hundred dirhams for each subsequent month, with a
maximum of 5 thousand dirhams.
The registration in the system shall be carried out by the target groups,
through the license holder or his legal representative submitting a registration
application in the system via the website https://register.entsts.ae , and
attaching the documents required to complete the registration process (vehicle
licence, company activity, truck plate number, etc.). This shall be followed by
setting an appointment for the applicant to install the tracking devices on the
truck, where the specialized company installs the tracking devices on the truck,
which means that it enters the system and is subject to the tracking and
monitoring system adopted in the country.
The list of categories concerned with registration in the system includes owners
of means of transporting goods such as transit trucks, hazardous materials
transporting trucks, restricted materials transporting trucks, goods with high
customs duties transporting trucks, and any other trucks that are determined by
the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security.p>
