This paper analyzes monetary policy transmission in the European Monetary System using VAR techniques. After a discussion of several V AR identification procedures for the stance of monetary policy, this paper proposes an ¡identification scheme that is essentially consistent with the basic facts and does not have significant puzzles. The strategy is based on extracting the stance of monetary policy from the German system and using that structural shock in the VAR systems of other countries of the EMS. The results show that the stronger the commitment with the EMS discipline, the stronger the effect of the German monetary policy on the monetary policy of other EMS countries and the weaker the effect on the exchange rates. El documento analiza la transmisión de la política monetaria en el Sistema Monetario Europea usando técnicas de V AR (Vectores Autorregresivos). Tras discutir sobre varios procedimientos de V AR para la identificación de la situación de la política monetaria, se propone un esquema de identificación, el cual es esencialmente consistente con los hechos económicos. La estrategia está basada en extraer la situación de la política monetaria del sistema alemán y utilizar el "shock" estructural en los sistemas V AR de otros países del SME. Los resultados demuestran que a mayor compromiso con la disciplina del SME, más fuerte es el efecto de la política monetaria alemana en la política monetaria de otros países del SME y más débil el efecto sobre los tipos de cambio.
