Decision ECB/2002/11 of 5 December 2002 on the annual accounts of the European Central Bank (1) (ECB) requires significant amendment.

The holdings on special revaluation accounts for gold, for currencies and for securities shall be reduced pro rata in the event of a reduction in the holdings of the relevant assets.
