PRESS RELEASE

ECB publishes calendars of its Executive Board Members

30 October 2015
  • ECB starts publishing EB members calendars in February 2016
  • The calendars will refer to period from 1 November 2015
  • Calendars will enhance transparency and accountability

The European Central Bank (ECB) announces today that it will start publishing the monthly meeting calendars of its Executive Board members. The calendars will refer to the period from 1 November 2015 and will be published with a lag of about three months. The first release will be in February 2016.

They will, as a rule, include appointments with external parties, unless releasing the information could undermine the protection of public interests recognised at EU level. The calendars will complement the information already currently available on the ECB website (including a weekly schedule of speaking engagements, monetary policy accounts, speeches and transcripts of media interviews).

The publication of calendars underscores the ECB’s commitment to transparency and accountability.
