Quality report on balance of payments (BOP), international trade in services (ITS) and foreign direct investment (FDI) statistics

The purpose of this paper is to present the overview quality report on balance of payments (BOP), international trade in services statistics (ITSS) and foreign direct investment (FDI) statistics for the year 2015, transmitted by the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. The quality assessment has been carried out against the following quality criteria: relevance, accuracy, timeliness and punctuality, accessibility and clarity, comparability and coherence. The report shows the second assessment results since the update of the data requirements introduced by Commission Regulation (EU) No 555/2012 and the introduction of the methodology in the 6th edition of the IMF’s ‘Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual’ (BPM6).
