APRA published a list of the latest Direct to APRA (D2A) validation rules for authorized deposit-taking institutions and insurers. The insurers include superannuation, general insurance, life insurance, private health insurance, and registered financial entities, along with the unauthorized foreign insurers. APRA also updated the list of derivation rules that are formulae that automatically calculate (derive) values for attributes, in most cases using the values for other attributes as inputs.
All APRA-reporting entities, including APRA-regulated and registered financial entities, submit data to APRA via the D2A. APRA uses validation rules within D2A to validate the data submitted by reporting entities. There are two types of D2A validation rules—mandatory and confirmation rules. Mandatory rules identify data, within D2A, that contain mathematical errors and discrepancies or factual inconsistencies. Entities must correct all data that fail mandatory rules, to submit data via D2A. Confirmation rules identify data, within D2A, that indicate reporting errors or require explanation. Entities are expected to correct any reporting errors identified by these rules. The rules are updated two weeks prior to the end of each quarter, in particular March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31.
D2A is a secure and user-friendly electronic data submission system. It enables APRA-regulated financial entities to lodge statutory returns. Data can be manually entered or imported directly from the information system of reporting institutions. D2A submits returns by passing encrypted information to APRA.
