Revision to the Contents of "Payment and Settlement Statistics"

October 30, 2015
Payment and Settlement Systems Department
Bank of Japan

The Bank of Japan publishes the "Payment and Settlement Statistics" (the Statistics) which shows the data on major Japanese payment and settlement systems.

The Bank will apply following changes to the Statistics reflecting the full launch of the new Bank of Japan Financial Network System (BOJ-NET), which took place on October 13, 2015.

1. Changes to Tables

1-a. Table I-3-2. DVP for JGB Settlement (cumulative share of transactions settled)

Columns for "(open of daily operations) - 9:00" and "(16:00) - 18:00" will be added, owing to the extension of the operating hours under the new BOJ-NET.

1-b. Table I-1-3. Third-Party Transfers

The table will be eliminated due to integration of messages related to funds transfers.

2. Changes to Data Definition

2-a. Table I-1-1. Settlement via BOJ Current Accounts

Prior to October 9, 2015, DVP settlement resulting from JGB-related operations was classified as "Others." From October 13, 2015, it will be classified as "DVP for JGB Transactions."

2-b. Table I-1-2. Settlement via BOJ Current Accounts by Sector

Prior to October, 2015, the sector "Shinkin Banks" includes the Shinkin Central Bank. From November, 2015, it excludes that bank.

2-c. Table I-3-1. JGB Settlement in the Book-Entry System and the Registration System

Prior to October 9, 2015, JGB settlement in the Registration System was included in the table. From October 13, 2015, it will be excluded from that table.  Accordingly, the title of the table will be changed to "JGB Settlement in the Book-Entry System."

Updates of figures for JGB settlement in the Registration System which are available in "BOJ Time-Series Data Search" will be stopped through October 2015 (please refer to "Discontinuation of data updates for JGB Settlement in the Registration System," published today).

In addition, similar to 2-a, DVP settlement resulting from JGB-related operations will be included in "DVP" from October 13, 2015.

3. Date of Application

Of the changes listed above, 1-a, 2-a and 2-c will be applied from "Payment and Settlement Statistics (October 2015)," scheduled on November 30, 2015. The rest will be applied from "Payment and Settlement Statistics (November 2015)," scheduled on December 30, 2015.
