Reporting Standard GRS 800.3

 

Facility Business Data: Public and Product Liability and Professional   Indemnity Insurance

 

 

Objective of this reporting standard

This reporting standard is made under section 13 of the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001 (the Collection of Data Act).  It requires general insurers (insurers) to provide APRA with information in respect of facility business relating to public liability, product liability and professional indemnity insurance in force during a reporting period. 

 

Reporting requirements 

1.             If, at any time during a reporting period covered by paragraph 2, an insurer is on risk in respect of reportable facility business, the insurer must report on the business, in accordance with the Data Specifications, by the time in paragraph 3. 

Note: reportable facility business is defined in paragraph 16.

2.             For the purposes of the paragraph 1, the reporting periods are the six month period beginning on 1 January 2016 and ending on 30 June 2016 and each successive 6 month period (ending on a 31 December or 30 June) after that.  

3.             A report required by paragraph 1 must be provided:

(a)           if the reporting period ends on 30 June – by no later than the 31 October next following the end of the reporting period;

(b)          if the reporting period ends on 31 December – by no later than the 30 April next following the end of the reporting period,

or such later time as APRA may determine in writing.  APRA may determine a later time in writing in relation to all insurers, or a class of insurers, or one or more insurers named in the determination.

Variation of reporting periods

4.             APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods for a particular insurer so that it is required to provide reports under this reporting standard in respect of reporting periods based upon the insurer’s own accounting financial year.

5.             APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods for a particular insurer to require it to provide reports under this reporting standard: 

(a)           more frequently (APRA may require this when, having regard to the particular circumstances of the insurer, APRA considers it necessary or desirable to obtain information more frequently for the purposes of the prudential supervision of the insurer); or 

(b)          less frequently  (APRA may do so when, having regard to the particular circumstances of the insurer and the extent to which it requires prudential supervision, and other relevant considerations, it is unnecessary to require it to provide the information on a 6 monthly basis). 

6.             If APRA changes a reporting period under paragraph 4 or 5, a report required under this reporting standard in respect of the changed period must be provided no later than the last day of the second month after the end of the changed period or such later time as APRA may determine in writing.   

Method of submission

7.             Reports required by this reporting standard must be rendered in comma separated values (CSV) format in accordance with the Data Specifications, and must be provided either electronically through the web site www.ncpd.apra.gov.au, by logging on using the relevant customer identification number and password provided by Fujitsu Australia (as agent of APRA), and following the instructions on that web site.

8.             Despite paragraph 7, APRA may, in writing, make either or both of the following determinations:

(a)           a determination that reports required by this reporting standard must be provided in accordance with alternative information technology requirements specified by APRA in the determination; and

(b)          a determination that reports required by this reporting standard must be provided to APRA or an agent of APRA at an alternative address in accordance with requirements specified in the determination.

Authorisation

9.             Reports provided by an insurer in accordance with this reporting standard must be the product of processes and controls developed by the insurer for the internal review and authorisation of the information contained in the reports.  It is the responsibility of the board and senior management of the insurer to ensure that an appropriate set of policies and procedures for the authorisation of data provided to APRA is in place. 

10.         Fujitsu Australia (as agent of APRA) will provide each insurer with a customer identification number.  If an insurer proposes to submit reports required by this reporting standard using the method in paragraph 7 (i.e. via the website), the insurer must apply for a password by viewing the web page referred to in paragraph 7, quoting the insurer’s customer identification number and following the instructions for applying for a password on that page.  Fujitsu Australia will advise the insurer’s Chief Financial Officer of the password for the insurer.  When a report is provided using the method in paragraph 7, the insurer will be required to quote its customer identification number and password.  Upon successful validation of the customer identification and password a secure session between the insurer and Fujitsu Australia will be created and the report will be encrypted before transmission.

11.         Despite paragraph 10, or where APRA has made a determination under subparagraph 8(a) or (b) specifying an alternate method of submission, APRA may also determine in writing that:  

(a)           a specified person (who need not be the Principal Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer of the insurer); 

(b)          a person holding a specified position (which need not be the position of Principal Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer of the insurer); or 

(c)           a person authorised by the insurer to use the insurer’s customer identification number and password, 

may, or must, authorise (in a manner specified) information provided by the insurer under this reporting standard.

Minor alterations to forms and instructions

12.         APRA may: 

(a)           make minor variations to the Data Specifications (either generally, or in relation to a class of insurers, or in relation to a particular insurer) to correct technical, programming or logical errors, inconsistencies or anomalies; 

(b)          vary, omit or substitute (either generally, or in relation to a class of insurers, or in relation to a particular insurer) an occupation code or description in Appendix A to the Data Specifications, if APRA forms the view that the existing code or description is inappropriate having regard to the circumstances or business of each relevant insurer and any other relevant considerations; or

(c)           vary, omit or substitute (either generally, or in relation to a class of insurers, or in relation to a particular insurer) a specification in a Table in the Data Specifications, if APRA forms the view that the specification is inappropriate having regard to the circumstances or business of each relevant insurer and any other relevant considerations.

13.         If APRA makes such a variation it must notify affected insurers in writing.

Past reporting periods

14.         A general insurer must provide APRA with reports in respect of a past reporting period under the old reporting standard, notwithstanding that it was repealed on 8 August 2013.  For these purposes:

old reporting standard means the reporting standard  Reporting standard GRS 800.3 (2005) made by Financial Sector (Collection of Data) determination No. 32 of 2005;

past reporting period means a reporting period ending on a date between 1 June 2013 and 1 June 2016.

15.         A general insurer must provide reports to APRA under paragraph 14 of this reporting standard by 1 September 2016.  For the avoidance of doubt, where a general insurer has provided a report to APRA prior to 1 September 2016 in relation to a past reporting period, the general insurer has complied with paragraph 14.

Schedule

 

Data specifications for facility business for public and product liability and

professional indemnity insurance

Overview  

These specifications have been prepared for the purpose of defining the facility business information required to be submitted by general insurers in respect of public and product liability and professional indemnity insurance.  This information will contribute to a National Claims and Policy Database (NCPD) in respect of these classes of insurance.  The intention is to create a database that holds information in respect of claims and policies for public and product liability and professional indemnity on a national basis.  State and Territory Government insurers will also contribute to the NCPD where possible.[1]    

Details of requirements in relation to reporting periods, method of submission and authorisation are set out in the reporting standard.  The data submitted by each general insurer will be validated by APRA each reporting period. The data validation to be performed is outlined in Appendix B.

Facility Business Record Data Field Definitions 

1.         Insurer Code                

A unique code assigned by APRA to each contributor

2. Month of end of Reporting periods                                                      

The data for each submission will relate to a six month period.  Enter as DDMMYYYY the last day of the period being reported, e.g. insert 30062004 for data relating to the six months ending 30 June 2004. 

3. Facility Identifier                                                          

A unique identifier for each facility where the insurer has received in excess of $100,000 in premium or made gross payments in excess of $100,000, for each respective six month period. Facilities where the insurer has received less than $100,000 in premium or made gross payments of less than $100,000 in the six month period are to be included as one record with the identifier “Other”. If a facility was previously reported separately, but now falls below the $100,000 threshold, it can now be reported as part of the “Other” data. 

4. Industry/Occupation Code                                                                                  

For Public and Products Liability, use the principal classification of the business from the latest edition of Catalogue Number 1292.0 Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and available on their web site.  Provide data at the 4-digit ANZSIC code level. Any reports or publications will be aggregated to the 2 digit level ANZSIC.

Residential strata owners’ liability is collected under ANZSIC classification 7711 - Residential Property Operators, whereas for Commercial Property Operators it is either 7712 or the occupation code that is most closely aligned with the tenancy of the strata.

For Professional Risks, use the codes provided in Attachment B.

Occupation code “OMULTI” and code “0000” (for ANZIIC codes) should only be used for Facility Business data where a facility covers multiple industry or occupation codes, no single code can be regarded as the principal industry or occupation code and hence it is not possible or appropriate to use one of the more specific codes.

5. Class of Business

           PL = Public & Product

           PI = Professional Risk 

6. Runoff Indicator

           Y = Yes

           N = No

7. Insurer’s Percentage of Facility

As well as unit record validation, overall reasonability checks will be carried out on each insurer’s data.

With each half-yearly data submission

Various comparisons between the current reporting period and the previous period will be carried out in order to monitor data reasonability and consistency. These may include:

           Change in the aggregate Gross Earned Premium, split by two digit ANZSIC code or single character occupation code;

           Changes in the total numbers of policies and claims;

           Counts of claims by various measures; causes of loss, severity or litigation status; and

           Changes in the average and total claims paid.

As well, various reasonability checks will be carried out within each period submission, including;

           Overuse of the various ‘Other’ categories and codes; and

           Comparison of the various premium fields against each other.

Other reasonability checks may be carried out on an ad hoc basis.
