Label: Interest Rate Derivative Contracts
Concept Guidance:
This is the value, as at the relevant date, of interest rate derivative contracts, consistent with the classification and measurement basis used for derivatives by institutions in accordance with accounting standards. An interest rate contract is any contract that transfers the interest rate risk of an underlying asset from one party to another.Derivatives are generally defined as those instruments/contracts, where the value is based on other products, and/or on prices associated with financial products. Derivative contracts involve:- Future delivery, receipt or exchange of financial items such as cash or another derivative instrument; or- Future exchange of real assets for financial items where the contract may be tradeable and has a market value.The contracts can either be binding on both parties (e.g. as with a currency swap) or subject to the exercise by one party of a right contained within the contract (as with options).Report this item regardless of whether favourable or unfavourable to the reporting entity. 
Form-Specifc Guidance:
An ADI may net claims and obligations arising from market-related contracts across both the banking and trading books with a single counterparty if covered by eligible bilateral netting agreements (refer to AGN 112.3 for details on how to calculate the credit equivalent amount of these contracts).
Report only those contracts that give rise to off-balance sheet credit exposures in the credit equivalent amount column. ADIs may refer to APRA where they are unclear as to which category is appropriate for a particular market-related transaction when calculating the credit equivalent amount of that transaction for capital adequacy purposes.

Exemption from capital weighting is permitted for:
- foreign exchange (except gold) contracts that have an original maturity of 14 calendar days or less; and
- instruments traded on futures and options exchanges that are subject to daily mark-to-market and margin payments.
Market risk charge of market-related contracts held in the trading book will be captured under the Market Risk Form.

While not intended as an exhaustive list, Interest rate derivative contracts may include the following:
- single currency interest rate swaps;
- basis swaps;
- forward rate agreements;
- interest rate futures;
- interest rate options purchased; and
- any other instruments of a similar nature.

Netting should not be applied when reporting amounts within the Statement of Derivative Activity.
Dimension Member Description
This dimension categorises the reported data according to the measurement scenario under which the reported value was calculated.
The value reported is the notional principal amount. The notional principal amount represents the face value, or gross amount, of an off-balance sheet transaction.This does not represent the fair value.
This dimension categorises information reported in relation to the capital adequacy approach adopted, as determined in accordance with relevant prudential standards.
The information reported is for capital adequacy purposes and has been determined under the standardised approach to calculating capital adequacy, in accordance with relevant prudential standards.
This dimension categorises reported information in relation to the requirement to use the potential future exposure add-on factors in the calculation of the counterparty credit risk charge, as determined in accordance with relevant prudential standards.
The reported information relates to data for which the counterparty credit risk charge of the reported information must be calculated using the potential future exposure add-on factors, as determined in accordance with relevant prudential standards.For example, market-related off-balance sheet exposures in the form of single name credit default swaps and single name total-rate-of-return swaps in the trading book must use the potential future exposure add-on factors in the calculation of the counterparty credit risk charge for capital adequacy purposes.
