The European Central Bank's functional units are grouped into business areas (Directorates General (DG) and Directorates (D)) that consist of Divisions and Sections.
The overall responsibility for day-to-day business lies with the Executive Board.
The organisational structure reflects the tasks performed and can be divided between core processes, which are closely related to the tasks as defined in the Treaty, and enable processes, which support the work.
For details of the organisational structure, see www.ecb.europa.eu/ecb/orga/orgachart/bas.
