The Riksbank’s work and policy

The Riksbank contributes to increased resilience

It is important that the actors in the payment system work together, both in prevention work and in dealing with various situations. The new Sveriges Riksbank Act gives the Riksbank a new responsibility for civil contingency planning for payments. This means that the Riksbank is responsible for ensuring that the general public can make the necessary payments in peacetime crisis situations and in the event of heightened alert, such as in the event of a war or threat of war.
