Advice to Member States

Eurostat provides bilateral advice to Member States when requested on specific cases. This may be before or after the transactions themselves are undertaken. The advice takes the form of letters addressed to the National Statistical Authorities.


In certain cases of future transactions, where the preparation for the transaction is of a confidential nature, Eurostat does not publish its advice until the transaction is announced by the national authority concerned.
