Kazakhstan to introduce transit traffic tracking system

Kazakhstan intends to establish electronic identifiers on the transit vehicles. The members of the Mazhilis, the Lower House of the Kazakh Parliament, propose creating a special information system in Kazakhstan to track the international road transport. The new bill, presented at the plenary session of the Lower House of the Kazakh Parliament, was approved in the first reading.

The draft Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan ‘On introducing amendments and supplements to certain Legislative Acts of Kazakhstan on tracking international road transport’ was developed at the instruction of the President of Kazakhstan to create a system for tracking transit traffic by using the navigation seals. The bill proposes to make amendments and supplements to the Code of Administrative Offenses and the Law ‘On Road Transport’. The bill provides for introducing the concepts of ‘information system for tracking international traffic’, as well as ‘electronic identifiers’ or ‘navigation seals’, said Pavel Kazantsev, the Member of the Mazhilis of the Kazakh Parliament.

In addition, the bill also grants the Kazakh government a competence to determine the national operator of the transit traffic tracking system, as well as to establish the requirements for the carriers on using the electronic identifiers while conducting international transportation. The bill proposes the introduction of administrative responsibility for the intentional damage or destruction of the electronic identifiers.

The draft law proposes to approve the procedure for the use of the electronic identifiers by the authorized body that is responsible for ensuring the receipt of taxes and other obligatory payments to the state budget.

Kazantsev said that the adoption of the bill will eliminate the violation of the law in the field of international transportation and contribute to the additional budget revenues.
