COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 3180/78 of 18 December 1978 changing the value of the unit of account used by the European Monetary Cooperation Fund

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 907/73 of 3 April 1973 establishing a European Monetary Cooperation Fund (1), and in particular the last paragraph of Article 5 of the Statutes of the Fund,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the Monetary Committee,

Having regard to the opinion of the Board of Governors of the European Monetary Cooperation Fund,

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 907/73, in Article 5 of the Statutes of the Fund, requires the latter's operations in the currencies of the Member States to be expressed in a European monetary unit of account of a value of 0 788867088 gramme of fine gold;

Whereas this definition no longer conforms with the rules in force in the international monetary system;

Whereas, apart from cases in which the value of the European monetary unit of account is changed automatically, the last paragraph of the said Article 5 provides that any other changes shall be decided on by the Council, acting unanimously on a proposal from the Commission, after consulting the Monetary Committee and the Board of Governors of the Fund;

Whereas the establishment of a new European monetary system, which was the subject of the resolution of the European Council meeting in Brussels on 4 and 5 December 1978, provides for the use of an ECU defined as a basket of Member States' currencies,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
