ECB published Guideline (EU) 2019/1034, which amends Guideline ECB/2014/31, on additional temporary measures related to Eurosystem refinancing operations and eligibility of collateral (ECB/2019/13). The Governing Council has decided that for the purposes of certain Articles of Guideline ECB/2014/31, the Hellenic Republic and Republic of Cyprus shall no longer be considered a euro area member state under a EU-IMF program.

The national central banks of the member states whose currency is the euro shall take the necessary measures to comply with Guideline (EU) 2019/1034 and apply them from August 05, 2019. They shall notify ECB of the texts and means relating to those measures by June 21, 2019 at the latest. Guideline ECB/2014/31 has been amended as follows:
- Paragraph 3 in Articles 1, 8, and 9 has been deleted.
