ECB foreign exchange reference rates
The foreign exchange reference rates are published by the European Central Bank. The rates are set on the basis of the regular daily concertation procedure between national central banks, which normally takes place at 2.15 p.m. CET. The exchange rates are for reference only and are published daily when TARGET system is open.
From 1 July 2016 the ECB’s euro foreign exchange reference rates will be published at around 16:00 CET
All currencies are quoted against the euro (base currency).
