The registration rules for Brussels

Image: Registration class 4 – entry without an environmental ticket

When entering the LEZ of Brussels, Green-Zones differentiates two registrations resulting from the division into low-pollutant EURO emission standards and older, more harmful EURO emission standards. On the Registry-Sticker, which was developed by Green-Zones in order to give a better overview on entry regulations in Belgium, this differentiation is expressed by the badge-classes 2 and 4.
The Brussels Region has decided that extremely polluting vehicles no longer have access to the LEZ environmental zone from 2018 and are therefore excluded from circulation.
Only in exceptional cases they can get an special admission by the purchase of a daily environmental ticket to enter the LEZ.
This applies first to the old diesel vehicles of the EURO emission standards 0 and 1.

All vehicles which meet the following entry requirements (with or without the payment of an additional charge for the environmental ticket), are allowed to enter the LEZ of Brussels.
Vehicles registered in Belgium are not subject to registration because they are already registered in the national database.
