Changes to the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency’s service fees as of 1 January 2022
There will be some changes to the fees charged for services provided by the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom starting from 1 January 2022. The increases concern, for example, fees on services for consumers and monitoring and supervision fees applied to organisations.
The need to increase service fees is due to rising costs and efforts to develop the electronic systems needed for the provision of services to make the use of our services easier and smoother for our customers. Traficom has also actively improved the efficiency of its internal processes to minimise the need to increase fees.
The increases will be implemented based on the principle of cost recovery, and the aim is to ensure the availability and continuity of services and to keep processing times customer-friendly.
