The EUropean CAR and driving licence Information System, is a system that connects countries so they can share vehicle and driving licence information and other transport related data. EUCARIS is not a database nor a central repository but an exchange mechanism that connects the Vehicle and Driving Licence Registration Authorities in Europe.  EUCARIS is developed by and for governmental authorities and supports a.o. the fight against car theft and registration fraud.

In memoriam Hans van der Bruggen


On the 4th of July, the tragic news reached us that Mr Hans van der Bruggen, founding father of EUCARIS and EReg, and former Deputy Director at the Netherlands Vehicle Authority RDW, unexpectedly passed away one day earlier.

In the early nineties of the twentieth century, Hans was the initiator of, and driving force behind, the development of the EUCARIS network. During the foundation of EReg in the first decade of this century, Hans also played an invaluable role. Hans chaired both networks for many years.

For all his contributions to the international cause, Hans has been awarded on behalf of King Albert II of the Kingdom of Belgium, and received the honor of Officer of the Order of Leopold II. In the Netherlands, Hans has been knighted in the Royal Order of Orange-Nassau.

His perseverance, fighting spirit and charisma, in combination with his vision and leadership, will not be forgotten.

Condolences and personal memories to be shared with the family, can be sent to the EReg Secretariat (
