Amendments in the requirements for ESFM
We inform you that amendments to Ordinance N-18/2006, promulgated in the State Gazette, no. 76 of Septeber 19, 2017, come into force.
As of September 21, 2017, there is a new regimen, affecting the approval, commissioning and verification by the competent authorities. The most important changes that you should pay attention to are the following:
- The ESFM must be sealed and available only to certain service technicians through a service key registered from the National Revenue Agency.
- The ESFM must be shut down in case any element is not working.
- The commissioning of ESFM will be done after the submission of a block diagram and the associated components to the NRA and after an inspection by the NRA and BIM (Bulgarian Metrology Institute) to approve the scheme.
The transitional provisions foresee a period of around one year (until September 30, 2018) in which the users of ESFM must comply with the new requirements.
In one month period (until October 23, 2017) the owners of ESFM are obliged to send by email a block diagram of the existing ESFPs and all the components, the links between them and the locations of the sealings to the NRA (Transitional Provisions, paragraph 31, paragraph 2).
