To enable the ECB and DNB to monitor cash handlers’ compliance and banknote circulation developments, cash handlers must prepare two half-yearly reports each year, to be submitted within two months after the expiry of the relevant reporting period. Such reports include the following information:
- the number of banknotes processed and recirculated by or on behalf of the cash handlers
- the banknote handling machines (machine types and numbers) used by or on behalf of the cash handlers for recirculation purposes
- the number of banknotes processed and recirculated by cash recycling machines, broken down by denomination.
