Bank of England statement: IT issues

Following a regular internal IT update, the Bank is experiencing intermittent technology communication problems that are indirectly affecting our ability to process a limited number of transactions for wholesale counterparties by the usual means.
Published on 25 January 2018

We have implemented workarounds to enable the Bank to operate as normal, including completing wholesale transactions in as timely a way as possible. We are working to resolve the underlying issue as quickly as we can.

This issue is not affecting the real-time gross settlement (RTGS) service or the CHAPS system, so the general public will see no impact on any of their banking services.

We will provide a further update on this in the morning.
