    APRA Consults on Reporting Standard for Credit Risk Management

    October 28, 2020

    APRA is consulting on the reporting standard for credit risk management (ARS 220.0). APRA is seeking feedback on the design of the proposed credit risk data collection, including items that authorized deposit-taking institutions consider to be challenging to report or would require additional time to implement. APRA is consulting on the instructions included in the draft reporting standard, the proposed implementation timeline, and appropriate entity-level aggregates from ARS 220.0 data, which could be declared non-confidential. APRA also seeks feedback on the feasibility of authorized deposit-taking institutions reporting a pro-rata allocation to individual financial instruments of provisions that have been raised on a portfolio basis. The feedback period ends on January 28, 2021 while the proposed standard is expected to commence on January 01, 2022.

    APRA intends to remove a number of items from the current reporting forms, including detail on interest income and certain breakdowns of impaired and past due items. APRA proposes to remove the requirement for authorized deposit-taking institutions to categorize their prescribed provisioning exposures into separate time buckets. APRA acknowledges that collecting provisions allocated on a portfolio basis at a detailed level, as is proposed in the draft reporting standard, introduces complexity into the collection. Accordingly, APRA is seeking industry feedback on ways that provisions could be reported at a financial instrument level, for example, on a pro-rata basis.

    APRA is proposing a risk-based approach to reporting based on the complexity of the authorized deposit-taking institution wherein less sophisticated authorized deposit-taking institutions have reduced reporting requirements. The proportionate approach seeks to balance burden with the supervisor requirements. APRA seeks further feedback on potential enhancements to this approach. The data collected by ARS 220.0 will form the basis of an authorized deposit-taking institution financial instrument data model, which will be extended at a future date to include topics such as capital adequacy for credit risk, among other areas of interest. In keeping with the APRA approach to data, the ARS 220.0 data model uses a financial instrument level concept-dimension model. Compared with the existing collection, the draft ARS 220.0 will collect more detailed data on credit exposures and provisions of authorized deposit-taking institutions. 

    APRA proposed to update ARS 220.0 to align it with the final version of prudential standard on credit risk management (APS 220) released in December 2019. To align with the commencement of the new APS 220, APRA proposes the first reporting period for the new data collection to be for quarter ending March 31, 2022. The proposed implementation of ARS 220.0 will coincide with the start of the new data collection solution APRA Connect. APRA intends to consult further on determining ARS 220.0 data to be non-confidential for the purposes of section 56 of the APRA Act at a later date. In the interim, APRA is seeking feedback on how appropriate aggregations could address industry concerns with a view to including them as part of the upcoming consultation. Once finalized, the draft ARS 220.0 is intended to replace the current reporting standards on impaired facilities (ARS 220.0), on prescribed provisioning (ARS 220.3), and on movements in provisions for impairment (ARS 220.5).
