Bank of Finland

Brief History

Established in 1811. In 1998–99, the central bank’s legislation was adapted to ensure its compatibility with the Maastricht treaty, in particular with the provisions prohibiting external influence and requiring security of office for members of the central bank’s decision-making bodies. Since 1 January 1999 the national central bank has been an integral part of the Eurosystem, with no independent power to determine monetary policy.
