The European Commission services regularly publish surveys on public administrations' preparedness and migration to . This is the fourth survey published.
Main findings of the survey are:
- Public administrations' (PA) migration to Credit Transfers () has accelerated at an impressive pace over the last eight months. In October 2010, the migration rate for the replying PA in the euro area was 14.5 % versus 2.7 % in the last survey. For the first time, migration by PA exceeds the corresponding rate for the overall market (i.e. 14.5 % vs. 9.6 %).
- In particular PA in Finland, Belgium, Austria, Spain, France and Germany have made significant progress over the last eight months.
- Migration to Direct Debits () remains marginal also due to the fact that, in the case of many PA, direct debits are generally not used. In October 2010, the migration rate for the replying PA in the euro area was only 0.24 %.
