The aim is to align the secondary legislation with the primary legislation. The new normative act focuses on several key aspects, with a focus on rules regarding fiscal electronic cash registers used in unattended equipment.

  • Firstly, it establishes regulations for the configuration and technical characteristics of fiscal electronic cash registers used in unattended equipment like vending machines. This equipment is intended for card payments or banknote or coin acceptors.
  • Secondly, the act defines prohibited functions for these devices in certain detail.
  • Thirdly, it allows cash registers to be powered by low-voltage electricity from the vending machines themselves.
  • Additionally, the act introduces new conditions under which these cash registers can be automatically locked.

Unattended equipment, including vending machines, is defined as devices used for retailing products or providing services directly to the public. To ensure consistent application of the regulations across different regions, the act empowers the tax authority to request additional documents for the taxation of electronic fiscal cash registers. The specific documents that may be requested will be determined by an order from the president of the tax authority.

Finally, the act repeals certain provisions related to technical approval procedures and the assignment of order numbers in the Register of Fiscal Electronic Cash Registers. The updated government decision, GD no. 355/2023, was officially published in the Official Gazette No. 344 in Romania.
