All taximeters must be programmed with the 2022 fare and sealed (verified) in order to operate from 1st September 2022.

Programming of the taximeter is completed by a private taximeter installer of your choice. Check that your installer is using a program that is approved by Legal Metrology. Once the 2022 program is installed in the taximeter, verification is completed by NSAI Legal Metrology through its Authorised Verifier, Applus. Verification bookings can be made at www.legalmetrology.ie

In circumstances were a verification cannot be carried out on or before the 1st September 2022, the taxi may not be operated unless formal evidence from Applus of a verification appointment is provided on the spot by the driver to An Garda Síochána, NTA Compliance Officers or Legal Metrology Inspectors.

Operating with a taximeter not appropriately programmed and verified will attract an NTA fine of €60 up to €250 depending on the circumstances and/or prosecution under the Metrology Act.

The Taximeter Program Update list below shows which taximeters can now be programmed with the 2022 fare in advance of the 1st September. This list will be frequently updated as more programs are approved.
