The Cash Register Security Ordinance (RKSV) - is an Austrian legal regulation on mandatory technical security devices in cash registers, with the help of which a manipulation security of cash transactions is to be achieved.

The principle of the Cash Register Security Ordinance (RKSV) is a linking of cash transactions with the help of an electronic signature. This means that each receipt bears a signature that includes not only the receipt data itself, but also the signature of the immediately preceding receipt. This creates an unbroken chain of all documents, and any subsequent manipulation of a document in the chain would result not only in the invalidity of its own signature, but also of all the signatures of all subsequent documents.

1. When the RKSV registration has been paid, the RKSV function will be activated for you in your Paymash account.
