EC published Regulation 2019/113 of ECB on the reporting of money market statistics in the Official Journal of the European Union. This regulation amends the earlier Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 of ECB (ECB/2014/48), which requires the reporting of statistical data by reporting agents to enable the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) to produce statistics on the euro money market. This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. It shall apply from March 15, 2019.
To ensure the availability of high-quality statistics on the euro money market, it is necessary to amend certain provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 (ECB/2014/48). It is important to ensure that each reporting agent reports to ECB or the relevant national central bank all transactions entered into between the reporting agent and financial corporations (except central banks where the transaction is not for investment purposes) as well as general government and certain non-financial corporations. In addition, it is necessary to ensure that the data collection benefits from the extended mandatory use of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) in reporting in EU. Changes have also been made to improve the timeliness of these reports.
Additional amendments have been made to ensure that statistical information is collected, compiled, and transmitted by reporting agents in a manner that protects the integrity of the information. It is important to emphasize that statistical information received by the national central banks or ECB should be impartial (that is, a neutral representation of observable transactions entered into at arm’s length by the reporting agent), objective, and reliable, to conform with the general principles in the ESCB’s Public commitment on European Statistics. Moreover, the changes are meant to make sure that the reporting agents ensure that any errors in reported statistical information are corrected and communicated to ECB and the relevant national central bank at the earliest possible date.
