When entering a Belgian LEZ, it is compulsory to register foreign vehicles

The orange Registration Certificate (REG-Certificate) developed by Green-Zones confirms to the buyer that Green-Zones has processed the legally required registration of his vehicle for a specific environmental zone in Belgium.

In Belgian environmental zones, the registration of all foreign vehicles is mandatory before entering an environmental zone (Low Emission Zone LEZ).

Green-Zones offers a platform with all the necessary information on current and planned Belgian LEZ environmental zones. We take care of all registration processes for you and, if necessary, provide you with the respective environmental ticket or day pass. The service also includes the delivery of an orange registration certificate for a Belgian environmental zone developed by Green-Zones. The registration certificate (REG-Certificate) developed by Green-Zones is not an official badge/vignette.

Since each city or municipality/region has very different regulations for its environmental zones, the respective registration mostly has to be done separately. Due to the diverse regulations and specifications for the EURO emission standards in the respective city/municipality and their LEZ, different entry restrictions for different vehicle types can be applied to the multiple LEZ zones in Belgium.

Due to the different regulations and requirements for the EURO classes in each city/municipality and in their LEZ, different driving bans can be imposed on different vehicle types in different LEZ environmental zones in Belgium.
Moreover, since registration is carried out separately for each LEZ and it cannot be transferred, and since environmental tickets/daily passes are valid only in the corresponding LEZ and are not subject to the same rules in each LEZ, foreign vehicles in the Belgian environmental zones could face high fines in case of non-compliance with these rules.
