Role of the Benelux General Secretariat
The Benelux General Secretariat has been appointed by the Benelux-countries to ensure the operational implementation and maintenance of the Benelux IDRO website. The Benelux General Secretariat is an intergovernmental organization facilitating cross-border cooperation between Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.
A Benelux Decision (see download below) was adopted establishing a common Benelux service for the registration of identifications as part of the Benelux ID Registration Organization (IDRO). The Secretariat is located in Brussels, Belgium.
This Benelux IDRO is a joint Benelux service managed by the Benelux General Secretariat on behalf of the relevant authorities of Flanders, Wallonia, Brussels-Capital Region, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Programme Support Action (PSA) on ID issuing and data collection for alternative fuels (IDACS)
The PSA IDACS has been set-up by the European Commission to support Member States in setting up data collecting for alternative fuels and make the data available through the National Access Points and to develop an effective, EU-wide coordination mechanism to assign unique identification codes to CPOs and EMSPs. The PSA has a duration of three years (2019-2021) and its Consortium consist of 15 Member States: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain.
The Consortium had to develop a format for the establishment of the first 5-digits of the e-mobility IDs for CPOs and EMPs and an EU-wide/coordinated approach regarding the remaining digits of the e-mobility IDs. Each of the Consortium-members has to establish a ID registration organisation (IDROs) at national level responsible for issuing and management of e-mobility IDs within each of the participating Member States. And a common ID Registration Repository (IDRR) needs to be established for the exchange between national IDROs.
Furthermore, the Consortium mandatorily have to collect data related to alternative fuels infrastructure, namely electric charging points and hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS). Other alternative fuels, such as CNG, LNG, LPG and highly-blended biofuels are optional.
