Approved coin processing machines

in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 1210/2010

According to the provisions in Council Regulation (EU) No 1210/2010, only those machines that have successfully passed a detection test carried out by the ETSC (European Technical and Scientific Centre), the Bundesbank or the designated national authority of a Member State and that were listed in the "Consolidated list of coin processing machines" at the time of their purchase may be used to check coins intended to be put back into circulation.

In order to allow manufacturers of coin processing systems to be added to the list of systems that are approved for the recycling of euro coins, the Deutsche Bundesbank provides system manufacturers with the opportunity to undergo tests, which are performed on the basis of a common Eurosystem test procedure.
