Payment Statistics

On 28 November 2013, the Governing Council of the ECB approved a Regulation (Regulation ECB/2013/43, or Regulation (EU) 1409/2013), establishing the reference framework for ensuring the collection of basic data needed for producing detailed statistics on payments and payment systems. The reporting agents must still report their data for 2021 in keeping with this regulation.

On 1 December 2020, the Governing Council of the ECB published Regulation (EU) 2020/2011 (or ECB/2020/59) amending Regulation (EU) No 1409/2013 (ECB/2013/43). This regulation will be applicable from 1 January 2022 and the first statistical data to be reported under it will be the quarterly data for the first three months of 2022 and the first-half data for the January–June period of 2022.
