The European Central Bank doesn’t usually determine monetary policy. 

Today a bank supposing a list of ‘other decisions‘ taken by a ruling legislature during a many new meetings, and while many of it is flattering dull, there was one line that seems to prove that the bank is relocating to make certain a U.K. will no longer have anything to do with prolongation euro banknotes, should a supposed ‘hard Brexit’ occur.

The bank amended its manners on banknote make to introduce, among others, a following change:


ECB Decision on a accreditation procedures for manufacturers

On 21 Sep 2016 a Governing Council adopted Decision ECB/2016/25 amending Decision ECB/2013/54 on a accreditation procedures for manufacturers of euro secure equipment and euro items. The amending preference introduces a following changes: (i) an prolongation of a ongoing requirement imposed on manufacturers to immediately surprise a ECB in essay of their goal to lift out certain acts that competence impact their accreditation status; (ii) a deception on manufacturers of an ongoing requirement to obtain a ECB’s created agree before carrying out acts that competence impact their accreditation status; and (iii) the introduction of a discretionary energy for a ECB to exclude to extend created agree if accreditation mandate have not been met or if an entity located in, or tranquil by an entity located in, a third state that is not a Member State of a Union or of a European Free Trade Association is concerned in an dictated transaction.
