TCH administers rights of agencies [points of sale (POS), internet points of sale (IPOS), transaction self service kiosks (TSSK)] to sell/refund air services for the purposes of protecting of ATSS participating carriers' interests.
Agencies’ sales/refund rights are regulated under
ATSS Standard # 105-2006 “Computerized Reservation Systems. Procedures of Administration of Accredited Agencies (Sales Locations) Rights to Sell Air Services on CCS-TCH Standard Traffic Documents Forms” and
Standard # EX105-2009 “Procedures for Administration of Accredited Agencies (Sales Locations) Rights to Sell Air Services on CCS-TCH Standard Traffic Documents Forms via Foreign CRSs”.
If agency or POS authority to sell/refund air services issued on STDs is revoked, Computerized Reservation System (CRS) disables functionality of ticket issue (sale, exchange)/refund on STDs for this agency (POS, IPOS or TSSK).

Currently, sales of air services issued on CCS-TCH STDs are possible via the following CRSs/GDSs:
