REGULATION (EU) 2019/113 OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 7 December 2018

amending Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 concerning statistics on the money markets (ECB/2018/33)

THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

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

Having regard to the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank, and in particular Article 5 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2533/98 of 23 November 1998 concerning the collection of statistical information by the European Central Bank (1), and in particular Articles 5(1) and 6(4) thereof,

After consulting the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2014/48) (2) requires the reporting of statistical data by reporting agents in order that the European System of Central Banks (ESCB), in the fulfilment of its tasks, may produce statistics on the euro money market.

(2)

To ensure the availability of high quality statistics on the euro money market, it is necessary to amend certain provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 (ECB/2014/48). In particular, it is important to ensure that each reporting agent reports to the European Central Bank (ECB) or the relevant national central bank (NCB) all transactions entered into between the reporting agent and financial corporations (except central banks where the transaction is not for investment purposes), as well as general government and certain non-financial corporations. In addition, it is necessary to ensure that the data collection benefits from the extended mandatory use of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) in reporting in the Union.

(3)

Given the importance of ensuring the availability of timely statistics on the euro money market, it is also necessary to harmonise and strengthen the obligations of reporting agents to transmit information to NCBs or the ECB in a timely manner.

(4)

Precautions should be taken to ensure that statistical information is collected, compiled and transmitted by reporting agents in a manner which protects the integrity of the information. In particular, it is important to emphasise that statistical information received by the NCBs or the ECB should be impartial, i.e. a neutral representation of observable transactions entered into at arm's-length by the reporting agent, objective and reliable, in order to conform with the general principles in the ESCB's Public commitment on European Statistics (3). Moreover, reporting agents should ensure that any errors in reported statistical information are corrected and communicated to the ECB and the relevant NCB at the earliest possible date.

(5)

Implementation of these provisions will ensure that the ESCB has more timely, comprehensive, detailed, harmonised and reliable statistical information on the euro money market, which will allow for a more in-depth analysis of the monetary policy transmission mechanism. In addition, the data collected may be used for the development and administration of a euro unsecured overnight interest rate.

(6)

Therefore, Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 (ECB/2014/48) should be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
