DECISION (EU) 2019/48 OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 30 November 2018

on the paying-up of the European Central Bank's capital by the non-euro area national central banks and repealing Decision ECB/2013/31 (ECB/2018/32)

THE GENERAL COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 47 of the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank (hereinafter the ‘Statute of the ESCB’) provides that national central banks of Member States with a derogation (hereinafter ‘non-euro area NCBs’) do not need to pay up their subscribed capital unless the General Council of the European Central Bank (ECB), acting by a majority representing at least two thirds of the subscribed capital of the ECB and at least half of the shareholders, decides that a minimal percentage has to be paid up as a contribution to the ECB's operational costs.

(2)

Article 1 of Decision ECB/2013/31 (1) provides that each non-euro area NCB shall pay up 3,75 % of its share in the ECB's subscribed capital with effect from 1 January 2014.

(3)

Decision (EU) 2019/43 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2018/27) (2) provides for the adjustment of the key for subscription to the ECB's capital (hereinafter the ‘capital key’) in accordance with Article 29.3 of the Statute of the ESCB and establishes with effect from 1 January 2019 the new weightings assigned to each NCB in the adjusted capital key (hereinafter the ‘capital key weightings’).

(4)

The quinquennial adjustment of the ECB's capital key requires the adoption of a new ECB decision repealing Decision ECB/2013/31 with effect from 1 January 2019 and determining the percentage of the ECB's subscribed capital which the non-euro area NCBs are under an obligation to pay up with effect from 1 January 2019,
