UAE national tracking system: 7 violations

Truck owners must register on 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
