Bank of Japan
Payment and Settlement Systems Department
The Bank of Japan publishes basic statistical data on major Japanese payment and settlement systems, such as the volume and value of settlements, in its monthly release of "Payment and Settlement Statistics." The Bank started to release "Payment and Settlement Statistics" in September 1991, and since then has revised the contents of the statistics several times to accommodate structural changes in the payment and settlement systems and to better meet user needs.*
In October 2008, the Bank implemented Phase 1 of the next-generation real-time gross settlement (RTGS-XG) project of the BOJ-NET Funds Transfer System. As a result, foreign exchange yen transactions, which were previously settled mainly on a net basis in the Foreign Exchange Yen Clearing System, are now settled on a real-time gross basis in the BOJ-NET Funds Transfer System. The Bank is now considering revising the contents of "Payment and Settlement Statistics." For further details, please see the proposed new format (PDF, 60KB) of "Payment and Settlement Statistics."
Proposed revisions to the contents are outlined below:
Any comments regarding the above proposed revisions are invited by Friday, November 28, 2008. After considering the comments received, the Bank will finalize the revised contents of "Payment and Settlement Statistics" and release them on its web site. Together with the release, the Bank may make public the comments received. If you prefer anonymity, please specify that in your comments.
