Emission Measurement Stations will start taking image documentation starting from January28/12/2017|Press releasesEmission Measurement Stations will start taking photos of vehicles from January on. The images will be stored, together with the measurement results, in an online information system of the Ministry of Transport. So the system, which the stations were testing during November and December, will now be launched. A similar process has applied already since 2016 for providing evidence of the presence of a vehicle in Technical Inspection Stations. "It will no longer be possible for a vehicle to get the record of a successful emission check without actually having to visit the station. If it does not pass the measurement in one station, it cannot easily try its luck in another. The reason is that the measurement protocols include, in addition to photos, times and the check time. On top of this, the measurement logs cannot be overwritten," the Minister of Transport Dan Ťok said. Originally, all Emission Measurement Stations had to take photos from December on. And the ministry's information system was fully ready. But the contractors of many stations failed to deliver in a timely fashion the computer equipment needed for the interconnection with the information system. Therefore, the Ministry of Transport allowed them to issue protocols in the original mode until the end of December. However, from 1 January it will no longer be possible to issue a valid emission measurement protocol if the station is not connected to the system. So far about 1080 Emission Measurement Stations have connected to the Ministry of Transport's information system.
