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 (hereinafter the ESCB Statute), and in particular Articles 29.3 and 29.4 thereof,

Having regard to the contribution of the General Council of the European Central Bank (ECB) in accordance with the fourth indent of Article 47.2 of the ESCB Statute,

Whereas:

(1)

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 (1) laid down with effect from 1 January 2007 the weightings assigned to those national central banks (NCBs) that were members of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) on 1 January 2007 in the key for subscription to the ECB’s capital (hereinafter the capital key weightings and the capital key respectively).

(2)

Article 29.3 of the ESCB Statute requires the capital key weightings to be adjusted every five years after the establishment of the ESCB by analogy with the provisions laid down in Article 29.1 of the Statute. The adjusted capital key applies with effect from the first day of the year following the year in which the adjustment occurs.

(3)

The last adjustment of the capital key weightings in accordance with Article 29.3 of the ESCB Statute was made in 2003 with effect from 1 January 2004 (2). The subsequent expansions of the ECB’s capital key were made in accordance with Article 49.3 of the ESCB Statute in view of the accession of new Member States to the European Union (3).

Article 1

Rounding

Where the European Commission provides revised statistical data to be used in adjusting the capital key and the figures do not total 100 %, the difference shall be compensated for: (i) if the total is below 100 %, by adding 0,0001 of a percentage point to the smallest share(s) in ascending order until exactly 100 % is reached, or (ii) if the total is above 100 %, by subtracting 0,0001 of a percentage point in descending order from the largest share(s) until exactly 100 % is reached.
