Data released are final, with occasional minor revisions. In cases of definitional changes or reclassifications, data may be revised over a longer time period and are commented in the introduction of the "Bulletin of Conjunctural Indicators."
Data are released on the last business day of the month following the reference month for all prescribed components.
Although there is an embargo on the release of national monetary data before the release of Euro area monetary aggregates by the ECB, the embargo is not normally expected to delay the release of the national data beyond the timeliness prescribed by the SDDS. In the event of a delay in the release of Euro area monetary aggregates that would affect the timeliness of release of national data, a notice will be added to the DSBB Advance Release Calendar for the affected month.
