Public consultation on amendments to the ECB Regulation on monetary financial institution balance sheet statistics

In view of the operational challenges faced by banks in the context of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the ECB has decided to postpone the implementation of the amendment to Regulation ECB/2013/33. The final Regulation and feedback statement will be published later this year and implementation is foreseen for 2022.

The European Central Bank (ECB) has prepared a draft Regulation amending the Regulation on monetary financial institution (MFI) balance sheet statistics. MFI balance sheet statistics primarily provide policy-makers with a comprehensive and timely picture of monetary developments in the euro area. This draft Regulation introduces new reporting requirements that enhance analysis of monetary and credit developments. It also modifies some existing requirements, definitions and reporting derogations where this supports better integration with other statistical datasets.

The ECB is holding a public consultation to provide interested parties with the opportunity to comment on the draft ECB Regulation amending Regulation (EU) No 1071/2013 of the ECB of 24 September 2013 concerning the balance sheet of the monetary financial institutions sector (recast) (ECB/2013/33).
