of 26 August 2008

amending Guideline ECB/2002/7 on the statistical reporting requirements of the European Central Bank in the field of quarterly financial accounts

(ECB/2008/6)

(2008/758/EC)

THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

Having regard to the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank, and in particular Article 5.1 and 5.2, Article 12.1 and Article 14.3 thereof,

Having regard to Article 9 of Guideline ECB/2002/7 of 21 November 2002 on the statistical reporting requirements of the European Central Bank in the field of quarterly financial accounts (1),

Having regard to Article 14.1 of the Rules of Procedure of the European Central Bank,

Whereas:

(1)

The revised transmission programme under the European System of Accounts 1995 (hereinafter the ESA 95) (2) has fostered the introduction of more effective statistical data coding standards. To contribute to the overall harmonisation of transmission standards for financial accounts statistics across the European Union, the coding standards set out in Annex II to Guideline ECB/2002/7 should be aligned with the coding standards of the ESA 95 transmission programme.

(2)

Under Article 9 of Guideline ECB/2002/7, the Executive Board of the European Central Bank (ECB) is entitled to make technical amendments to the Annexes to Guideline ECB/2002/7 provided that they neither change the underlying conceptual framework nor affect the reporting burden.

(3)

The harmonisation of coding standards provided for in this Guideline is a technical amendment which neither changes the conceptual framework underlying the data reporting requirements and the derogations therefrom set out in Annexes I and III to Guideline ECB/2002/7 nor affects the reporting burden.

(4)

The Executive Board has taken account of the views of the Statistics Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS GUIDELINE:

Article 1

Annex II to Guideline ECB/2002/7 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Guideline.
