This database is an analytical tool designed to provide a comprehensive set of information on the main elements of domestic fiscal frameworks across EU Member States, namely numerical fiscal rules, independent institutions and medium term budgetary frameworks (MTBFs).
The information contained in the database was collected by the European Commission in coordination with the Economic Policy Committee through a comprehensive survey on domestic fiscal frameworks in the EU. The questionnaires of this survey were filled in by Member States. Following the April 2009 Council Conclusions, this data base will be annually updated.
