France, officially the French Republic, is a unitary semi-presidential republic. The country's largest city and main cultural and commercial center is Paris.
Fiscalization was introduced in this country in 2018. There are no mandatory hardware devices that have to be used (e.g. certified fiscal printers) neither online communication with Tax Authority.
The main requirement in France is to use certified POS solution that will ensure that all transactions are recorded and stored in the way that manipulations are not possible.
Certification process is carried out by bodies accredited by French Committee on Accreditation. Those bodies are INFOCERT (AFNOR) and LNE which stands for The National Laboratory of Metrology and Testing. In addition to this, POS producers can opt for so called self certification.
In order to prevent manipulations re-certification is also mandatory.
