German term or phrase: Inventuraufnahme
as in: "Die Beendigung der Inventuraufnahme erfolgt in den einzelneen Aufnahmeorten durch den zuständigen aufsichtsführenden Prüfer." Does this mean "taking" inventory, "listing" inventory, "recording" inventory, "accepting" inventory, or something else entirely? TIA
