DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 21 June 2013

amending Decision ECB/2010/29 on the issue of euro banknotes

(ECB/2013/16)

(2013/358/EU)

THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 128(1) thereof,

Having regard to the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank, and in particular Article 16 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In view of the accession of Croatia to the European Union and its national central bank (NCB), Hrvatska narodna banka, joining the European System of Central Banks on 1 July 2013, Decision ECB/2013/17 of 21 June 2013 on the national central banks’ percentage shares in the key for subscription to the European Central Bank’s capital (1) provides for the expansion of the key for subscription to the capital of the European Central Bank (hereinafter ‘capital key’) and establishes, with effect from 1 July 2013, the new weightings assigned to each NCB in the expanded capital key (hereinafter the ‘capital key weightings’).

(2)

Article 1(d) of Decision ECB/2010/29 of 13 December 2010 on the issue of euro banknotes (2) defines the ‘banknote allocation key’ and refers to Annex I to that Decision, which specifies the banknote allocation key applying since 1 January 2011. Given that new capital key weightings will apply from 1 July 2013, Decision ECB/2010/29 needs to be amended in order to determine the banknote allocation key applying from 1 July 2013,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
