  Data revision - policy

MSs may report revisions to the ECB at any time, notably as regards national data for up-to-date figures published in the Orange Book. However, the revisions on country contributions will only be taken on board for the publication of the euro area aggregates within the proposed framework and hence the agreed reporting timetable(section 6.2 of the BOP data exchange booklet).
