About the Archives

The ECB Archives are managed by the Archives Team within the Information Management Services Division of the Directorate General Secretariat.

Contents of the Archives

The ECB Archives hold records from:

  • the Committee of Governors of the Central Banks of the Member States of the European Community (1964-93);
  • the European Monetary Institute (1994-98); and
  • the European Central Bank (1998-present).

In line with the ECB's commitment to openness and transparency, as well as to enable and facilitate research, the records we have released are available on this website in chronological order in PDF format.
