Change of system technology, return of OBUs Change of system technology, return of OBUs

The operation of the microwave ESVZ system was terminated on November 30, 2019 at 24:00 CET. From then, tolling in the Czech Republic is handled by the SEM satellite system. The two systems are technologically incompatible, so contracts recorded in the original system are to be terminated and users will return old OBUs to the operator.

Beginning on 1 December 2019 at 00:00 CET, toll vehicles on toll roads must be newly registered in the new SEM system and equipped with a new on-board unit.

How to return an OBU of the former microwave system

The deposit will be refunded for OBU premid, that:

  • is not expired (OBU premid expires when there is no toll transaction recorded in the last 12 months)
  • and is not soiled or damaged.

Unspent credit balance will be refunded from pre-pay OBU premid in case it is not expired.
