Roughly 150 Bank of Russia customers participate in the testing. The exercise will proceed in two cycles. The first cycle will be held till 9 June, and the second one – from 13 to 26 June 2018.

All credit institutions and other Bank of Russia clients are expected to take part in the testing to check their readiness for the work with new payment services. Testing guidance materials are posted on the Bank of Russia website at www.cbr.ru/mcirabis in the Testing Schedules section.
