Workshop on Business Registers

Hosted by Eurostat in Luxembourg on 29 June 2022

CMFB Workshop on collaboration and exchange of Business Registers (BR) data for statistical and non-statistical purposes between National Statistical Institutes (NSI) and National Central Banks (NCB)

Background

NCBs and NSIs closely cooperate to enhance the sharing of data for the purpose of statistical consistency as well as the agility and flexibility of statistical production. The workshop aims at bringing together the various national and European examples of collaboration and exchange of BR. These business cases could inspire countries and European institutions to adopt the best practices in term of statistical cooperation. The discussion concerning confidentiality and legal framework constraints also provides avenues to explore as well as workable solutions to reconcile statistical and non-statistical use.
