The REG-Certificate for Dutch Environmental Zones
In the Rotterdam Maasvlakte (port of Rotterdam) environmental zone, registration for trucks (N2, N3) is mandatory.
If the truck is a vehicle with EURO 6 standard, it may enter after registration. For trucks with EURO 0-5 standards, entry is also possible after registration, provided they are not older than 7 years and were registered before 2013.
Vehicles with EURO 0-5 standards that do not meet the above conditions, can apply for an exemption for a maximum of 12 days per year for which there is no guarantee of approval.
Entry without registration and/or without exemption will result in heavy fines.
Green-Zones offers its registration service for the Rotterdam Maasvlakte environmental zone and issues a Green-Zones REG-Certificate for the vehicle to be registered. The registration certificate (REG-Certificate) for European environmental zones developed by Green-Zones confirms to the buyer that Green-Zones has registered his vehicle for an environmental zone in the Czech Republic as required by law. The registration certificate is not an official badge/vignette.
From 25.06.2019 an application for registration will be provided here.
