Foreign AffiliaTes Statistics (FATS) - Recommendations Manual The Regulation (EC) No 716/2007 of the European Parliament and the Council (EC) on the structure and activity of foreign affiliates as the regulatory framework for the provision of foreign affiliates statistics (FATS) was adopted in 2007. The Regulation aims to make sure that in future harmonised inward and outward FATS data will be available. The recommendations manual, as called for in article 7 of the regulation, will play a crucial role in the compilation process.
