Specific monitoring

Explanation and aims of specific monitoring. Reviews of the progress on policy measures divided by country.

Specific monitoring is a form of intensified dialogue between the European Commission and national authorities that aims to help EU countries address macroeconomic imbalances that could negatively affect their own economic stability or that of the euro area or the EU.

Aim of specific monitoring

Specific monitoring involves

  • fact finding missions by European Commission officials to EU countries
  • follow-up reports covering economic developments and the implementation of relevant policy measures

Countries identified as having "imbalances" or "excessive imbalances" by in-depth review (IDR) receive specific monitoring adapted to the degree and nature of their imbalances.

Before 2016, specific monitoring concerned countries with "excessive imbalances", as well as  selected euro area countries with imbalances of relevance to the euro area.
