To provide you a brief introduction to the future OOP scenario in moving, we kindly ask you to watch the following video. Alternatively you may click through the subsequent slideshow, which contains subtitles to explain the scenario interactions. Moreover, the textual description and posters could be found under the  interactive slideshow.


Registering a motor vehicle in another country scenario from SCOOP4C on Vimeo.




Tanja is moving from country A to country B for a new job opportunity. First she has to register herself, then she needs to have obtained a car insurance that is accepted in the country B   and afterwards she can register her car in her new country of residence. 
For the vehicle registration, Tanja uses the service (vehicle registration) of the Single Digital Gateway (1). The single digital entry point provides her the needed information and forwards her to the registration portal of the local Vehicle Registration Authority (VRA)  in country B (1.1).

Tanja uses her digital ID that is accepted in country B for the registration; in the first instance to verify her personal information and to give consent to share the relevant data (2). The required data is then automatically transferred between the vehicles registries of the VRAs from country A and B (2.1). The registration is accomplished with multilingual standard forms, available in different EU languages. Tanja has to complete them with any missing data that was not transferred and confirms the correctness by submitting the form (2.2). Relevant data includes the EU Certificate of Conformity , proof of insurance cover,  proof of ownership, proof of value added tax payment , proof of roadworthiness (in accordance with EC 2009/40), and the payment of vehicle registration/ road tax.

After the local VRA of country B processes and accepted the registration (which includes double-checking for information on file entries using EUCARIS ) (3), the confirmation certificate is issued (3.1) and the car tax is generated . Subsequently, Tanja pays the fee for the registration via ePayment (4), enabled through the DIRECTIVE (EU) 2015/2366. Concurrently, she fills out a SEPA Direct Debit Scheme for the tax authority to collect the car tax going forward. The finalized documents as well as the general information on Tanja and her car are sent to the national VRA in country B (5) and stored in their registry (5.1). Finally, Tanja receives the registration confirmation certificate (6) and can decide whether she wants to pick-up her new plate at a registered pick-up point or if it should be send securely  to her new address.

After the registration procedure, Tanja has to return her old license plates to the VRA of country A. Because she had to physically move her car from country A to B, she either had to request temporary export plates at her past VRA or use her original  plates. Tanja will need to return the plates which will signal to the VRA of country A that the car is no longer in use in their area of jurisdiction, either because the plates were temporary export plates or because a return of original plates and a removal from the registry of residence indicates that she moved abroad.

For the seamless exchange of the different certificates, forms, and personal data between member states, an EU-wide service maps the knowledge based on unified vocabularies and taxonomies. The services base on legal frameworks that support OOP implementations (e.g. eIDAS and SDGR). This way, data can be automatically shared between the registries of the involved countries and registries. The data and payment transfers are secured via a transport protocol.
