(ECB/2013/28)

(2014/30/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 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 46.2 of the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank,

Whereas:

(1)

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) laid down with effect from 1 July 2013 the weightings assigned to those national central banks (NCBs) that were members of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) on 1 July 2013 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 Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Statute of the ESCB’) 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 Statute of the ESCB was made in 2008 with effect from 1 January 2009 (2). The subsequent expansion of the ECB’s capital key was made in accordance with Article 48.3 of the Statute of the ESCB in view of the accession of a new Member State to the European Union (3).

In accordance with Council Decision 2003/517/EC of 15 July 2003 on the statistical data to be used for the adjustment of the key for subscription to the capital of the European Central Bank (4), the European Commission provided the ECB with the statistical data to be used in determining the adjusted capital key,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
