3. PCHC noted that of the 24 banks that were not listed above, some have participated but unfortunately

encountered processing issues which they failed to resolve until the cut-off time. PCHC shall get in touch with

these banks to determine reasons why they were unsuccessful and at the same time discuss resolutions on issues

experienced during the exercise.


4. Also, based on PCHC’s records, ten (10) of these 24 banks have not participated in any of the BCP exercises that

were priorly conducted. As report on banks’ participation in our BCP exercises is a Regulatory reportorial

requirement, we encourage these banks to participate in future BCP exercises.
