Official approval of equipment and application program for invoice ticket printers (ECF)
Approval for invoice ticket printers (ECF) for retail sales is a mandatory requirement of the Finance Council (CONFAZ), without which no equipment of this type is allowed on the market. The Fiscal Applications Program (PAF-ECF), which is responsible for outlet cash registers, must also be homologated by institutions duly accredited by the COTEPE/ICMS regulation, such as IPT.
The Institute performs structural trials of ECF hardware and of application software programs. These tests are required for manufacturers, importers and legal representatives who wish to submit their products to analysis by the tax authorities.
IPT issues ECF product or software application compliance reports based on the agreement currently in force.
