PRESS RELEASE

Publication of the indicative calendars for the reserve maintenance periods in 2010 and 2011

29 May 2009

The European Central Bank (ECB) is today publishing indicative calendars for the Eurosystem’s reserve maintenance periods in 2010 and 2011. For the first time, these calendars are being published for the next two years, thereby following the practice adopted in setting the schedules for the meetings of the Governing Council of the ECB.

Taking into account the schedule for the meetings of the Governing Council (see the ECB’s press release of 8 May 2009) and the indicative calendars for the Eurosystem’s tender operations (see the ECB’s press release of today), the indicative calendars for the reserve maintenance periods in 2010 and 2011 are as follows:
