Statement from the NBS Bank Board’s 13th meeting of 2023

On 11 July 2023 the Bank Board of Národná banka Slovenska held its 13th meeting of 2023, chaired by NBS Governor Peter Kažimír.

The Bank Board approved the strategic allocation of the Bank’s investment reserve assets.

The Bank Board took note of the Bank’s Structural Challenges report, which will be published on the Bank’s website.

The Bank Board approved a Decree of Národná banka Slovenska amending Decree No 139/2013 of Národná banka Slovenska, laying down detailed provisions on the elements of an application for a foreign exchange licence and on requirements for carrying out foreign exchange transactions.

The amending Decree changes the way in which foreign exchange transaction data are to be reported to Národná banka Slovenska. Instead of reporting such data in paper form, obliged entities will be required to report them in electronic form via the Bank’s Statistics Collection Portal. In addition, the Decree updates the scope of data to be reported for the supervision of bureaux de change licensed to carry out foreign exchange transactions. The amending Decree brings a more practical, electronic form of reporting that will ensure more effective data processing, and it also changes the content of the data to be reported. The Decree reflects lessons learnt from supervisory activity and requirements arising from the regulation of anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism.
