The Bank of Japan publishes the "Payment and Settlement Statistics" which shows the data on major Japanese payment and settlement systems, such as the volume and value of settlements.

From the release of "Payment and Settlement Statistics (October 2018)", the Bank has applied following changes to accommodate structural changes in the payment and settlement systems and to better meet user needs.

Introduction of new data related to the Zengin System

The Zengin System started its 24/7 operation by launching the "More Time System" running in addition to the operation hours of the original system ("Core Time System", regularly running from 8:30 to 15:30 on weekdays). To reflect this change, the following data have been added. In addition, the definitions of some existing data have also been changed.

  1. Small-value Transactions in the Zengin System: Core Time System
  2. Small-value Transactions in the Zengin System: More Time System
