On-Site Examination and Off-Site Monitoring


The Bank carries out on-site examination by visiting the premises of financial institutions based on the contracts with them, in order to grasp their business operations and the state of the property. The Bank contributes to the stability of the financial system by examining financial institutions' risk management processes as well as reaching an informed judgment on their business activities and financial conditions, and, when necessary, urging improvement, through on-site examinations.
