Ιt currently comprises the following purchase programmes
- third covered bond purchase programme (CBPP3)
- asset-backed securities purchase programme (ABSPP)

AVAILABLE FOR LENDING IN THE CONTEXT OF THE PUBLIC SECTOR PURCHASE PROGRAMME (PSPP) AND THE SECURITIES MARKETS PROGRAMME (SMP)
As of 2 April 2015, the Governing Council of the ECB decided that the securities purchased by the Eurosystem under the public sector purchase programme (PSPP), are made available for securities lending in a decentralized manner by a number of Eurosystem central banks. The aim of PSPP securities lending is to maintain bond and repo market liquidity without disrupting normal repo market activity.
In this context, the Bank of Greece makes the securities purchased under the PSPP and the SMP that are also eligible under the PSPP available for securities lending via the Fails mitigation programme (Automatic Securities Lending) and Agency Lending (GC Acess) Programme of the Euroclear Bank SA.
