Kassensicherungsverordnung (KassenSichV) regulates the technical requirements for electronic recording and security systems, such as Point-of-Sale (POS) systems & electronic cash registers in order to end the manipulation and potential tax evasion in Germany. The regulation is designed to protect against the tampering of digital records. To be legally compliant and ensure systems are tamper-proof, all POS systems in Germany must be installed with certified TSE solutions. Additionally, all existing POS systems used in the retail and hospitality sector, must be retrofitted in accordance with the requirements by the end of the grace period.
Requirement: Every transaction must be saved in a way that manipulation is not possible. Every POS has to use security system (TSE) certificated by the government. Every POS and TSE system must be reported and registered at the tax authority.
The TSE solution consists of:
- Security module
- Secured memory module
- Digital interface
