COMMISSION DECISION (EU) 2021/143

of 5 February 2021

amending the Annex to the Monetary Agreement between the European Union and the Vatican City State

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to the Monetary Agreement of 17 December 2009 between the European Union and the Vatican City State (1), and in particular Article 8(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Monetary Agreement between the Union and the Vatican (‘the Agreement’) entered into force on 1 January 2010.

(2)

Article 8(1) the Agreement requires the Vatican to implement Union legal acts and rules on euro banknotes and coins, prevention of money laundering, of fraud and counterfeiting of cash and non-cash means of payment; medals and tokens and statistical reporting requirements. Those acts and rules are listed in the Annex to the Monetary Agreement.

(3)

The Annex to the Monetary Agreement should be amended by the Commission every year to take into account the new relevant Union legal acts and rules and the amendments to the existing ones.

(4)

Some legal acts and rules of the Union are not relevant anymore and should therefore be deleted from the Annex, while other relevant legal acts and rules of the Union were adopted or amended and should be added to the Annex.

(5)

The Annex to the Monetary Agreement should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to the Monetary Agreement between the European Union and the Vatican City State is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
