The exchange rates against the euro published by the ECB are for reference purposes only.
The ECB aims to ensure that the published exchange rates reflect the market conditions at the time of the daily concertation procedure. Since the exchange rates of the above currencies against the euro are averages of buying and selling rates, they do not necessarily reflect the rates at which actual market transactions have been made.

The euro foreign exchange reference rates:

  • are published by electronic market information providers and by the ECB on its website shortly after the concertation procedure has been completed;
  • are computed using the “certain” method (i.e. EUR 1 = x foreign currency units); only one reference exchange rate (i.e. the mid-rate) for each currency is published;
  • vary, depending on the currency, in terms of the number of significant digits, reflecting market conventions. However, in most cases five significant digits are used.
  • may be published by the euro area national central banks in more comprehensive lists than the one provided by the ECB.
