Public consultation on the draft ECB Regulation amending the Regulation on payments statistics

The ECB has cancelled the public hearing on the draft ECB Regulation amending the Regulation on payments statistics as a result of measures taken to address the COVID-19 pandemic. The deadline for submitting comments to the public consultation has been extended to 7 May 2020.

The European Central Bank (ECB) has prepared a draft Regulation amending the Regulation on payments statistics. The draft Regulation introduces new reporting requirements in relation to information on innovative payment services and channels, payment schemes, and fraudulent payment transactions. Collecting this information will enable the ECB to more effectively perform its catalyst and oversight roles in the areas of retail payments and payment systems. In addition to improving performance, more detailed and frequent statistical information on card payments will help to enhance the ECB’s understanding of cross-border trade and economic forecasting.

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 1409/2013 of the ECB of 28 November 2013 on payments statistics (ECB/2013/43).

The deadline for submitting comments is midnight CET on 7 May 2020.
Only comments received by this deadline will be considered.
