Market Information Dissemination (MID)

We use a range of communication and information tools to explain our policies.

MID is a system that allows us to publish information and data which is structured and suitable for automatic processing. The system has been designed to be open.

MID offers:

  • dissemination of structured information
  • content integrity
  • source authenticity.

MID content is available via RSS 2.0 feeds as well as SOAP-based web services.

All information published via MID services is considered in the public domain.

What's available on MID

How to use MID

Update of the liquidity data schema

In the liquidity data schema we are introducing a new RSS flow with the benchmark allotment amount for our main refinancing operations. We are also making several other small changes to this schema.

These changes will take place on 24 September 2018.

Please refer to the above zip folder, which contains:

  • a table with the differences between the old and the new schema
  • the old schema file
  • a sample file using the old schema
  • the new schema file including the new benchmark allotment RSS flow
  • 8 sample files using the new schema.

The sample files using the new schema were created using test data.

Please also note that contrary to the current practice each file will be published separately keeping though the same name in the RSS, i.e. Liquidity Management Publication. The thematic tag inside the header of each file points out which is the file sent.

For further details on release types and structured content, please refer to the MID Catalogue and Integration Guide.
