Dear Sir or Madam,

starting in January 2020, every POS system used in Germany must have a certified technical security system (CTSS) that meets the requirements of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and the Kassensicherungsverordnung (KassenSichV). 

From then on, manufacturers of POS systems supplying the German market must deliver also a certified CTSS solution that complies with the requirements of the Technical Guideline BSI TR-03153. In addition, the security module of the CTSS must also be certified according to the Common Criteria. Manufacturers of POS systems can now buy those certified CTSSs solutions from a few sources on the market or start their own independent CTSS development and certification process to fulfill their business targets.

TÜViT can help you in both of these cases.

We offer you an Orientation Webinar if you are not sure about buying or developing a certified CTSS and additionally, we support you with further consulting services and technical seminars during the development process of your own certified CTSS solution for the German market.

Why are we in this unique position to do this?

TÜViT is recognized by the German BSI as an evaluation body for TR-03153 / TR-03151 and also as an evaluation body for safety evaluations according to the international Common Criteria standard.

We can therefore offer you both services from a single source.

Have we caught your attention? Then you should talk to our specialists.
