APRA seeks to harmonise its prudential standards across APRA-regulated industries where appropriate and practical. This ensures that like risks are treated in a like manner so that no significant differences arise in the regulatory treatment of entities with similar risks operating in different industries. This page covers prudential requirements that extend across multiple industries.
APRA’s requirements for the Heads of conglomerate groups are also contained in this section.
