Key legal documents

The European System of Regional and National Accounts (ESA 2010) was published in the Official Journal on 26 June 2013 and compulsory for data transmissions from September 2014 onwards.

It is complemented by an implementing decision granting temporary derogations and an implementing regulation specifying the interchange standard for the transmission of data required (SDMX) as well as an implementing regulation on the modalities, structure, periodicity and assessment indicators of the quality reports on data transmitted under the ESA 2010 Transmission Programme.
