Payment statistics relevant institutions (PSRIs)
For the purposes of financial statistics, payment statistics relevant institutions (PSRIs) mean the central bank, commercial banks and credit unions (see the list of MFIs) and also payment institutions and foreign payment institutions registered in another EU Member State operating in the Czech Republic through a branch, electronic money institutions and foreign electronic money institutions registered in another EU Member State operating in the Czech Republic through a branch, small-scale payment service providers, small-scale electronic money issuers, payment account information administrators and foreign payment account information administrators registered in another EU Member State operating in the Czech Republic through a branch, and postal licence holders.
All of the above entities are subject to the duty to report to the Czech National Bank under Decree No. 401/2021 Coll. of 1 January 2022 (pdf, 83 kB, available in Czech only), on the submitting of some statements in the payment system area to the Czech National Bank.
The European System of Central Banks (ESCB) has established procedures for continuously monitoring, checking and updating the list of the institutions which form the PSRI sector. The aim is ensure that the statistics for this sector are up-to-date, accurate and sufficiently stable for the purposes of satisfying regular and ad hoc analytical needs, monitoring payment markets in Member States and promoting the smooth operation of payment systems.
The list of PSRIs covers not only the euro area countries, but also the non-euro area EU countries. The list is updated on an annual basis on the ECB’s website (www.ecb.europa.eu) under the heading “Payment statistics relevant institutions” (“List of PSRIs”).
The list for the Czech Republic is updated quarterly on the Czech National Bank’s website (at 10 a.m. on the 7th calendar day after the end of each quarter). If the 7th calendar day is a non-working day, the list is published on the previous working day.
