GUIDELINE OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 25 July 2013

on government finance statistics

(recast)

(ECB/2013/23)

(2014/2/EU)

THE GOVERNING COUNCIL 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, and Articles 12.1 and 14.3 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 479/2009 of 25 May 2009 on the application of the Protocol on the excessive deficit procedure annexed to the Treaty establishing the European Community (1),

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 549/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 May 2013 on the European System of national and regional accounts in the European Union (2),

Whereas:

(1)

Guideline ECB/2009/20 of the European Central Bank of 31 July 2009 on government finance statistics (3) needs to be substantially amended and should therefore be recast in the interests of clarity and transparency.

(2)

The update of the methodological framework, from the European System of Accounts (ESA) 1995 to the ESA 2010, as laid down by Regulation (EU) No 549/2013, requires the adaptation of the statistical concepts. For reasons of consistency, the European Central Bank’s (ECB) requirements in the field of government finance statistics (GFS) should be based on the Union statistical standards defined in ESA 2010.

(3)

To fulfil its tasks, the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) needs comprehensive, i.e. covering all transactions including those in which general government acts as an agent for European Union institutions, and reliable data for economic and monetary analysis. The procedures laid down in this Guideline do not affect the responsibilities and competencies at the level of the Member States and of the Union.

(4)

It is necessary to establish efficient procedures for exchanging GFS within the ESCB, to ensure that the ESCB has timely GFS meeting its needs and that there is compatibility between them and the forecasts of the same variables prepared by the national central banks (NCBs), irrespective of whether the statistics are compiled by the NCBs or by the competent national authorities.

(5)

Part of the information necessary to meet the ESCB’s statistical requirements in the field of GFS is compiled by competent national authorities other than NCBs. Therefore, some of the tasks to be undertaken under this Guideline require cooperation between the ESCB and the competent national authorities. Article 4 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2533/98 of 23 November 1998 concerning the collection of statistical information by the European Central Bank (4) obliges the Member States to organise themselves in the field of statistics and fully cooperate with the ESCB in order to ensure the fulfilment of the obligations arising out of Article 5 of the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank (hereinafter the ‘Statute of the ESCB’).

(6)

The statistical sources based upon Regulation (EC) No 479/2009 and the ESA 2010 do not satisfy the needs of the ESCB in respect of coverage of government debt and deficit-debt adjustment statistics and statistics on transactions between the Member States and the Union budget. Therefore further compilation by the competent national authorities is necessary.

(7)

It is necessary to set up a procedure to carry out technical amendments to the Annexes to this Guideline in an effective manner, provided that such amendments neither change the underlying conceptual framework, nor affect the reporting burden. NCBs may propose such technical amendments to the Statistics Committee of the ESCB, whose view will be taken into account when following this procedure,

HAS ADOPTED THIS GUIDELINE:

Article 1

Definitions

For the purposes of this Guideline:

(1)

‘euro area Member State’ means a Member State whose currency is the euro;

(2)

‘government finance statistics (GFS)’ means statistics on revenue, expenditure and deficit/surplus, statistics on deficit-debt adjustment, and statistics on government debt (as set out in Annex I);

(3)

‘government debt’ has the same meaning as defined in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 479/2009;

(4)

‘first transmission’ means the regular transmission performed by the NCBs before 15 April;

(5)

‘second transmission’ means the regular transmission performed by the NCBs before 15 October.

Article 2

Statistical reporting obligations of the NCBs

1.   The NCBs shall report GFS to the ECB, as specified in Annex I, on a calendar year basis. The data shall comply with the principles and definitions of Regulation (EC) No 479/2009 and of the ESA 2010, as further detailed in Annex II.

2.   The NCBs shall report in accordance with the methodological definitions laid down for sectors and subsectors in Section 1 of Annex II to this Guideline and for the following in Section 2 thereof:

(a)

‘revenue, expenditure and deficit/surplus statistics’, which comprise the statistics contained in Tables 1A, 1B and 1C of Annex I;

(b)

‘deficit-debt adjustment statistics’, which comprise the statistics contained in Tables 2A and 2B of Annex I;

(c)

‘government debt statistics’, which comprise the statistics contained in Tables 3A and 3B of Annex I.

3.   The complete data set shall comprise all categories as defined in Annex I (covering revenue, expenditure and deficit/surplus statistics, deficit-debt adjustment statistics and government debt statistics). It shall also cover back data from 1995 to the year to which the transmission relates (year t-1).

4.   By way of derogation from paragraph 3, the NCBs shall not be required to transmit back data for categories covered by the derogations agreed between the European Commission (Eurostat) and Member States.

5.   The transmission of the data specified in Tables 1A-C, 2A-B, 3A-B of Annex I shall start in October 2014.

6.   The data on deficit/surplus, debt, revenue, expenditure and nominal gross domestic product (GDP) shall be accompanied by reasons for revisions when the magnitude of the change to deficit/surplus caused by revisions is at least 0,3 % of GDP or the magnitude of the change to debt, revenue, expenditure or nominal GDP caused by revisions is at least 0,5 % of GDP.

Article 3

Statistical reporting obligations of the ECB

1.   On the basis of the data reported by the NCBs, the ECB shall manage the ‘GFS database’, which will include euro area and national data. The ECB shall disseminate the GFS database to the ESCB.

2.   The NCBs shall flag their national statistical information indicating to whom it may be made available. The ECB shall take this flagging into account when it disseminates the GFS database.

Article 4

Timeliness

1.   The NCBs shall report complete data sets twice a year, before 15 April and before 15 October.

2.   The NCBs shall report on their own initiative (partial) data sets, at any other time, when relevant new information becomes available. This data set may contain estimates for categories for which no new information is available.

3.   The ECB shall disseminate the GFS database to the NCBs at least once a month, not later than the next ECB working day after the ECB finalises the data for publication.

Article 5

Cooperation with the competent national authorities

1.   Where the sources of some or all of the data described in Article 2 are competent national authorities other than the NCBs, the NCBs shall endeavour to establish with those authorities the appropriate modalities of cooperation to ensure a permanent structure of data transmission to fulfil the standards and requirements of the ESCB, unless the same result is already achieved on the basis of national legislation.

2.   When, in the course of this cooperation, an NCB is unable to comply with the requirements laid down in Articles 2 and 4 because the competent national authority did not provide the NCB with the necessary information, the ECB and the NCB shall discuss with that authority how this information can be made available.

Article 6

Transmission standard

The required statistical information shall be made available to the ECB in a form which meets the requirements laid down in Annex III. This requirement does not prevent the use of some other means of transmitting statistical information to the ECB as an agreed fall-back solution.

Article 7

Quality

1.   The ECB and NCBs shall monitor and promote the quality of the data reported to the ECB.

2.   The Executive Board of the ECB shall report yearly to the Governing Council of the ECB on the quality of the annual GFS.

3.   The report shall address, at least, the coverage of the data, the extent to which they comply with the relevant definitions, and the magnitude of revisions.

Article 8

Simplified amendment procedure

Taking account of the views of the Statistics Committee, the Executive Board shall be entitled to make technical amendments to the Annexes to this Guideline, provided that such amendments neither change the underlying conceptual framework nor affect the reporting burden. The Executive Board shall inform the Governing Council of any such amendment without undue delay.

Article 9

Repeal

1.   Guideline ECB/2009/20 is repealed from 1 September 2014.

2.   References to the repealed Guideline shall be construed as references to this Guideline and shall be read in accordance with the correlation table set out in Annex IV.

Article 10

Final provisions

1.   This Guideline is addressed to all Eurosystem central banks.

2.   This Guideline shall take effect on 1 September 2014.

ANNEX III

TRANSMISSION OF DATA TO THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

The national central banks (NCBs) use the facilities provided by the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) which relies on the ESCB IT infrastructure for the electronic transmission of the statistical information required by the European Central Bank (ECB). The exchanges of data within the ESCB shall be based on the Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange format. This requirement does not prevent the use of some other means of transmitting statistical information to the ECB as an agreed fall-back solution.

NCBs observe the recommendations listed below in order to ensure that data transmission functions satisfactorily.

Completeness: NCBs report all required series keys. Reporting no series keys or non-listed series keys will be considered as incomplete reporting. Should an observation be missing, the omission is recorded using the corresponding observation status flag.

Accounting identities and sign convention of the data: the validation rules must be implemented by the NCBs before the data are transmitted to the ECB.

Where revisions are made to only a subset of series keys, the validation rules are applied to the whole report.
