Whereas:

(1)

Decision ECB/2004/10 of 23 April 2004 laying down the measures necessary for the paying-up of the European Central Bank's capital by the non-participating national central banks (1), determined the percentage of the subscription to the European Central Bank's (ECB's) capital which the national central banks (NCBs) of the Member States that would not have adopted the euro on 1 May 2004 were under an obligation to pay up on 1 May 2004 as a contribution to the ECB's operational costs.

(2)

In view of the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union and their respective NCBs joining the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) on 1 January 2007, Decision ECB/2006/21 of 15 December 2006 on the national central banks’ percentage shares in the key for subscription to the European Central Bank's capital (2) establishes with effect from 1 January 2007 the new weightings assigned to each NCB that will be a member of the ESCB on 1 January 2007 in the key for subscription to the ECB's expanded capital (hereinafter the capital key weightings and the capital key respectively).

(3)

The ECB's subscribed capital will be EUR 5 760 652 402,58 with effect from 1 January 2007.

(4)

The expanded capital key requires the adoption of a new ECB decision repealing Decision ECB/2004/10 with effect from 1 January 2007 and determining the percentage of the ECB's subscribed capital which the NCBs of the Member States that will not have adopted the euro by 1 January 2007 (hereinafter the non-participating NCBs) are under an obligation to pay up with effect from 1 January 2007.

(5)

In view of Articles 3.5 and 6.6 of the Rules of Procedure of the General Council of the European Central Bank, the Governors of the Bulgarian National Bank and Banca Naţională a României have had the opportunity to submit observations regarding this Decision prior to its adoption,
