Exchange Rate Mechanism

Exchange Rate Mechanism
One of the components for the establishment of the single European currency. It provided a central exchange rate for national currencies against the European Currency Unit, thereby intending to stabilise exchange rates, encourage trade within Europe and control inflation. The ERM ceased in 1992.
