Payment and Settlement Systems Department
Bank of Japan
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 (April 2015)," scheduled on May 29, 2015, the Bank will apply following changes to accommodate structural changes in the payment and settlement systems and to better meet user needs.
Following data related to electronic money will be newly introduced.
The data of private clearing and settlement systems for securities and derivatives (excluding those related to settlements via BOJ current accounts) will no longer be published by the Bank owing to the statistics published by the organizations in charge of those systems. The eliminated data series are as follows.
After the revision of the contents, the data of respective organizations related to "Settlement via BOJ Current Accounts" will continue to be published in the new statistics. To obtain the data that will no longer be published in the Bank's statistics, please refer to those organizations' websites whose links will be provided in the "Payment and Settlement Statistics."
The definition of "Values of settlement via BOJ current accounts" of central counterparties will be integrated to "The aggregate value of credits and debits." The value of the following data will therefore be doubled since those data are calculated on the basis of the payment to the central counterparties.
Japanese and English contents will be published in an identical format.
