Information for SRS Developers – Restaurant Sector (Cloud Solution)
Beginning in 2023, a new technological solution under the mandatory billing measures will be phased in for the restaurant sector (bars, restaurants and catering businesses).
This new solution will feature:
- a certified sales recording system (SRS) that will collect transaction data and securely send it to a cloud environment;
- a cloud environment, called the WEB-SRM, that will validate and store the data before securely sending it to us;
- a computer system that integrates WEB-SRM data into our informational environment.
Most restaurant establishment operators will also have a receipt printer, which must be compatible with their SRS.
The WEB-SRM will replace the SRM. It is a cloud environment that will receive SRS transaction data. It will then validate and store the data before securely sending it to us.
To be used with the cloud solution, you must adapt your SRS to work with the WEB-SRM and have it certified by us.
To help you estimate the work required to make your product compatible with the WEB-SRM, see document SW-76-V, General Information for Adapting an SRS (Cloud Solution).
For the certification process, see Certification of Sales Recording Systems That Work With the WEB-SRM.
Under the mandatory billing measures in the restaurant sector, each administrator of a remote server (a centralized computer system) that communicates directly with the WEB-SRM must request an authorization code from us.
The code authorizes the remote server to communicate with the WEB-SRM and receive a digital certificate used to identify the owner of the private key or public key.
Administrators will be able to get an authorization code for a remote server used in the restaurant sector starting in November 2023.
