Legal requirements for basic price units from 28.05.2022

Grundpreiseinheit

Since February 2022, the unit “100g” is no longer available as a basic price unit in new software versions. In the PCG update, it has been or will be replaced by the unit “1 kg” on items whose basic price was affected, and converted accordingly, in order to be in line with the changes to the Price Indication Ordinance (PAngV) from 28.05.2022. If the basic price unit for certain articles remains “100g”, we recommend that you update PCG instead of changing them manually.

The basic price specified by law is intended for easy price comparison for consumers, must be clearly attributed to the product, but must not be displayed larger than the selling price. It must be indicated as a price per quantity, including VAT and other price elements. The usual units of quantity are kg, litre, metre, square metre or piece. The base price does not need to be indicated if it is the same as the final price or for quantities of less than 10 g or 10 ml.
