Following the approval (on December 2017) of the consolidation of the Eurosystem’s real-time gross settlement system TARGET2 and the securities settlement platform TARGET2-Securities (T2S), and the development of a Eurosystem Collateral Management System, the ECB has published the user requirement documents for

  • central liquidity management
  • future real-time gross settlement (RTGS) services
  • shared services

These documents are accompanied by a glossary.

The user requirements documents have benefitted from more than 2,800 comments, from over 50 institutions, submitted during a market consultation on the Eurosystem’s future RTGS services. The consultation ran from 10 May to 30 June 2017.

The TARGET2-T2S consolidation project has now entered the implementation phase and is expected to be completed in November 2021. The new system will exploit the synergies across all TARGET Services, bringing significant improvements to liquidity management.
