Truck owners in the UAE have until October 30 to register in the national electronic tracking system, according to the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security (ICP).
The authority also identified seven violations, with fines ranging from Dh500 to Dh10,000 for violators starting October 31.
Violations are imposed on transit trucks, trucks transporting hazardous materials, trucks transporting goods with high customs duties, and any other trucks specified by the authority.
Truck owners must register on https://icp.massarsolutions.ae to get approval via e-mail and visit approved centres to have the tracking devices installed in their vehicle.
Those who fail to register in the system before the deadline will be fined Dh1,000 for the first month, and Dh100 for each month thereafter, with a maximum fine of Dh5,000.
The fine is Dh500 per month with a maximum fine of Dh2,500 for those who do not register in the system within 60 days from the expiry date of their registration and do not update their data within 30 days.
Anyone who submits incorrect data in their registration application will be fined between Dh5,000 and Dh10,000.
Damaging, tampering or removal of locks of the electronic tracking device or opening a shipment before reaching its destination will invite a fine ranging from Dh1,000 to Dh5,000.
Changing truck route, truck driver or the head of the truck without notifying the ICP will invite a fine of between Dh500 and Dh2,000. Loading or unloading a shipment before it reaches its destination is punishable with a fine of between Dh5,000 and Dh10,000. ICA/Expat Media
