On the 8th September the European Central Bank (ECB) published an assessment report on the implementation status of the Euro Systems business continuity oversight expectations for systemically important payment systems. This was conducted as part of the Euro Systems oversight task and confirmed that the business continuity and crisis communication arrangements of the assessed systems are maintained at high standards by the respective operators. While further improvements are recommended in some areas, the deficiencies identified do not pose a significant risk to the effective functioning of the overall business continuity framework of the systems. System operators are expected to act on the oversight findings communicated to them without undue delay and to continue reviewing and testing their business continuity and crisis communication processes on a regular basis.
