Business Continuity Planning


The Bank develops and continually revises business continuity plans for functions such as circulation of banknotes and operation of payment and settlement systems, in order to carry out its responsibilities in times of disaster. The Bank trains its staff and conducts emergency drills on a regular basis to ensure a timely and appropriate response.

The Bank also coordinates with relevant parties for effective business continuity planning at payment and settlement systems, at the market level, and in the financial system as a whole. For example, the Bank tests contingency procedures with market participants and with related administrative institutions, based on various scenarios including large-scale earthquakes.
