Reporting Standard ARS 120.2

Securitisation — Supplementary Items

Objective of this Reporting Standard

This Reporting Standard sets out the requirements for the provision of information to APRA in relation to an authorised deposit-taking institution’s securitisation activities.

 

It includes Reporting Form ARF 120.2 Securitisation — Supplementary Items, and should be read in conjunction with Prudential Standard APS 120 Securitisation.

 

Authority

1.             This Reporting Standard is made under section 13 of the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001.

Purpose

2.             Information collected in Reporting Form ARF 120.2 Securitisation — Supplementary Items (ARF 120.2) is used by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) for the purpose of prudential supervision, including assessing compliance with Prudential Standard APS 120 Securitisation (APS 120). It may also be used by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Application and commencement

3.             This Reporting Standard applies to all authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs), other than providers of purchased payment facilities. This Reporting Standard may also apply to the non-operating holding company (NOHC) of an ADI (refer to paragraph 6).

4.             This Reporting Standard applies for reporting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2018.

Information required

5.             An ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide APRA with the information required by the version of ARF 120.2 designated for an ADI at Level 1 for each reporting period.

6.             If an ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies is part of a Level 2 group, the ADI must also provide APRA with the information required by the version of ARF 120.2 designated for an ADI at Level 2 for each reporting period, unless the ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised NOHC. If the ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised NOHC, the ADI’s immediate parent NOHC must provide APRA with the information required by that form for each reporting period. In doing so, the immediate parent NOHC must comply with this Reporting Standard (other than paragraphs 5 and 11) as if it were the relevant ADI.

Forms and method of submission

7.             The information required by this Reporting Standard must be given to APRA in electronic format using the ‘Direct to APRA’ application or by a method notified by APRA, in writing, prior to submission.

Note: The ‘Direct to APRA’ application software (also known as ‘D2A’) may be obtained from APRA.

Reporting periods and due dates

8.             Subject to paragraphs 9 and 10, an ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard within 28 calendar days after the end of each quarter based on the ADI’s financial year (within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001).

9.             APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods or specified reporting periods for a particular ADI to require it to provide the information required by this Reporting Standard more frequently, or less frequently, having regard to:

(a)           the particular circumstances of the ADI;

(b)          the extent to which the information is required for the purposes of the prudential supervision of the ADI; and

(c)           the requirements of the RBA or the ABS.

10.         APRA may, by notice in writing, extend the due date by which an ADI must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard, in which case the new due date will be the date specified on the notice of extension.

Quality control

11.         All information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard (except for the information required under paragraph 6) must be the product of systems, processes and controls that have been reviewed and tested by the external auditor of the ADI as set out in Prudential Standard APS 310 Audit and Related Matters. Relevant standards and guidance statements issued by the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board provide information on the scope and nature of the review and testing required from external auditors. This review and testing must be done on an annual basis or more frequently if required by the external auditor to enable the external auditor to form an opinion on the accuracy and reliability of the information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard.

12.         All information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard must be subject to systems, processes and controls developed by the ADI for the internal review and authorisation of that information. These systems, processes and controls are to assure the completeness and reliability of the information provided.

Authorisation

13.         When an officer of an ADI submits information under this Reporting Standard using the D2A application, or other method notified by APRA, it will be necessary for the officer to digitally sign the relevant information using a digital certificate acceptable to APRA.

Minor alterations to forms and instructions

14.         APRA may make minor variations to:

(a)           a form that is part of this Reporting Standard to correct technical, programming or logical errors, inconsistencies or anomalies; or

(b)          the instructions to a form, to clarify their application to the form,

without changing any substantive requirement in the form or instructions.

15.         If APRA makes such a variation, it will notify, in writing, each ADI that is required to report under this Reporting Standard.

Transition

16.         An ADI must report under the old reporting standard in respect of a transitional reporting period. For these purposes:

old reporting standard means the reporting standard revoked by the determination that makes this Reporting Standard (being the reporting standard that this Reporting Standard replaces); and

transitional reporting period means a reporting period under the old reporting standard:

(a)    that ended before the date of revocation of the old reporting standard; and

(b)   in relation to which the ADI was required, under the old reporting standard, to report by a date on or after the date of revocation of the old reporting standard.

Note: For the avoidance of doubt, if an ADI was required to report under an old reporting standard, and the reporting documents were due before the date of revocation of the old reporting standard, the ADI is still required to provide any overdue reporting documents in accordance with the old reporting standard.
