To ensure that payments can be settled even in the event of disruptions or operational breakdowns, the Riksbank conducts regular exercises together with the RIX participants. An example scenario for an exercise could be a total breakdown of the RIX system. There are well-developed procedures for settlement in different types of scenarios. In this particular case, payments have to be settled according to RIX contingency procedures. The aim of joint exercises is to give everyone a good understanding of the contingency procedures and the ability to limit any negative consequences and make the right decisions in the event of a crisis.
