Bank of Japan (BOJ) revises the list of surveyed banks for the "Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices at Large Japanese Banks" as from April 2009 survey.  BOJ makes it rule to review the list of surveyed banks every three years.

In this survey, BOJ invites the 50 largest Japanese commercial banks in terms of loan amount outstanding, comprising domestically licensed banks and shinkin banks. 
(See Introduction of the "Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices at Large Japanese Banks" ("Loan Survey") for the details of the survey.)
(Footnotes) Domestically Licensed Banks conduct transactions with the Bank of Japan, and exclude the Japan Post Bank.

The aggregated loan amount of the 50 reporting banks accounts for approximately 74 percent of total amount outstanding of loans by all Japanese commercial banks in the year 2007.

This revision is the third time since the first revision in April 2003. The list of surveyed banks will be reviewed in the survey of April 2012.
