The Commission has installed a telex with an automatic answering device which gives the conversion rates
in a number of currencies. This service is available every day from 3.30 p.m. until 1 p.m. the following day.
Users of the service should do as follows:
—Ùcall telex number Brussels 23789,
—Ùgive their own telex code,
—Ùtype the code ‘cccc’ which puts the automatic system into operation resulting in the transmission of the
conversion rates of the ecu,
—Ùthe transmission should not be interrupted until the end of the message, which is marked by the code
‘ffff’.
Note:ÙThe Commission also has an automatic fax answering service (No 296Ø10Ø97/296Ø60Ø11) providing
daily data concerning calculation of the conversion rates applicable for the purposes of the common
agricultural policy.
