De ECB en de centrale banken van de landen van het eurogebied (het Eurosysteem) zullen op 25 november 2015 beginnen met het in omloop brengen van het nieuwe bankbiljet van €20. Zij zullen nauw met alle belanghebbenden samenwerken zodat deze voldoende tijd krijgen om hun machines te testen en aan te passen.

Welke stappen worden door de Europese Centrale Bank en de nationale centrale banken ondernomen ter voorbereiding op de komst van het nieuwe bankbiljet van €20?

− Het nieuwe bankbiljet wordt ter beschikking gesteld aan fabrikanten van bankbiljettenapparatuur, leveranciers en eigenaars van machines en detectie-apparaten bij de nationale centrale banken van het eurogebied, zodat deze hun machines kunnen testen en aanpassen. Na de onthulling van het nieuwe €20-biljet op 24 februari 2015 zal het ook beschikbaar zijn voor testen en aanpassen buiten de centrale banken.

−Een lijst van bankbiljettendetectie-apparaten en bankbiljettensorteermachines die door de centrale banken van het Eurosysteem zijn getest, waarop staat aangegeven of de desbetreffende apparatuur de nieuwe bankbiljetten kan verwerken, is hier beschikbaar.

− In alle landen van het eurogebied zullen seminars over de details van de uitgifte worden gehouden. Het eerste van deze seminars is gehouden bij de Banca d'Italia.

Een Partnership-Programma verschaft fabrikanten en leveranciers van bankbiljettenapparatuur, beroepsorganisaties en -verenigingen en hun klanten en gebruikers een scala van communicatiehulpmiddelen en materiaal om te nieuwe bankbiljetten te promoten. Dankzij dit programma kunnen Partners tijdig informatie ontvangen en gemakkelijk en efficiënt met hun stakeholders communiceren.

Als fabrikant van bankbiljettenapparatuur, wat moet ik nu doen?

Als u nog geen informatie ontvangen heeft over het nieuwe biljet van €20 of als u nog niet in de gelegenheid bent geweest het te testen, neemt u dan contact op met de centrale bank in uw land. 



Als bank/detailhandelaar/bedrijf dat met contact geld omgaat hebben we bankbiljettendetectieapparatuur en/of bankbiljettensorteermachines in huis, dus wat moeten we nu doen?

U dient contact op te nemen met uw leverancier en te vragen hoe u uw bankbiljettenapparatuur kunt updaten. Te uwer informatie is een lijst van machines en apparaten die de nieuwe bankbiljetten kunnen verwerken beschikbaar op de website van de ECB, en deze zal wordt regelmatig worden geactualiseerd met informatie over het nieuwe biljet van €20.

Aarzelt u niet contact op te nemen met uw nationale centrale bank of de Europese Centrale Bank als u vragen of problemen heeft.
