Significant changes in the operations of automatic vending machines

26 June 2018

On 19th March 2018 a new 7/2018 (III. 19.) Decree of Ministry for National Economy was published which amends the previous (31/2016 (IX. 2.)) Decree about technical requirements, operations and maintenance, and data-providing obligations to the NAV (Hungarian tax authority) of food & beverage vending machines.

One of the most important changes of the amended Decree is the newly published deadline for operators: they must ensure the installation of AFE (automatic monitoring unit) into the food & beverage vending machines by 1st July 2018.

The AFE installation can be requested by an online booking system provided by the Supervisor Service Provider (so called ‘felügyeleti szolgáltató’). It is strongly advised to book the installation as soon as possible because the installations are fulfiled in the order of claims.

Those food & beverage vending machines in which the AFE software can’t be installed can operate only until 30th June 2018.
