FRANKFURT Aug 9 (Reuters) - Germany's second-biggest lender, Commerzbank, said it has found no wrongdoing by its staff in delivering data for the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (Euribor), which is used as a reference for trillions of euros in euro-denominated loans and debt instruments.

"We have used the Euribor debate as an opportunity to review our internal procedures," Chief Financial Officer Stephan Engels said in a conference call on Thursday.

"According to our current findings, we see no evidence of irregularities," he said, adding that the bank has responded to requests for information from regulators.
