The European System of Central Banks (ESCB) releases its statistics and related methodologies via the websites of the European Central Bank (ECB) and the national central banks (NCBs), and the ESCB makes continuous efforts to facilitate their use. Against this background, the ESCB would like to set out its common policy regarding the reuse of ESCB statistics.
All publicly available ESCB statistics may be reused free of charge on the condition that the source is quoted (e.g. “Source: ECB statistics.”) and that the statistics (including metadata) are not modified. The policy of free access and free reuse does not imply a right to obtain confidential data.
