of 17 July 2023

amending Regulation (EC) No 1055/2008 as regards the frequency with which the Member States supply their quality report

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 184/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 January 2005 on Community statistics concerning balance of payments, international trade in services and foreign direct investment (1), and in particular Article 4(3) thereof,

The quality assessment of the data in the field of balance of payments (BOP) statistics, international investment position (IIP) statistics, international trade in services statistics and foreign direct investment statistics is performed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2). Furthermore, Commission Regulation (EC) No 1055/2008 (3) sets out the quality criteria and content and frequency of the quality reports.

(2)

Monitoring of quality of data is critical and it should be carried out in a timely manner. The right balance should be achieved between the need for monitoring and the frequency of the reporting of the relevant information to the European Parliament and the Council in order to avoid disproportionate burden.

The annual frequency with which the Member States provide the Commission (Eurostat) with a quality report should therefore be changed to biennial reporting.

(4)

Member States should submit their next quality report to the Commission (Eurostat) not later than 31 May 2025, and then every two years.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 1055/2008 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the European Statistical System Committee,
