Is there a definition of the term ‘price check’?

There is no definition of the term ‘price check’ in either the Cash Register System Act or the Cash Register System Regulation. ‘Price check’ means that the cash register system is used to check the price of a product (the product is scanned) without any sale being registered. To the customer, it may appear that the product is being registered in the normal way, as the price will appear on the customer's display.

If the cash register system has functions for checking prices, such price checks must be registered in an electronic log, and the number must be stated in X and Z reports broken down according to product group and amount. See Section 2-7 fourth paragraph and Section 2-8-2(t) of the Cash Register System Regulation; see Section 2-8-3.
