Stress testing

For evaluation of the resilience of the financial system as a whole the CNB uses the instrument of stress testing. The stress tests results are published in the annual Financial Stability Report.

Taking into account the key role of banks in the financial system of the Czech Republic, stress testing of the banking sector is performed several times a year. From the start of 2010 the results were published every quarter. In mid-2012 the CNB reduced the publication frequency to twice a year – once in the annual Financial Stability Report in June and once in the form of a short report at the turn of November and December. The methodology of stress testing has been regularly amended and published in the individual Financial Stability Reports, usually as thematic articles or boxes.
