APRA Connect test environment

APRA has temporarily suspended the project to replace APRA’s Direct to APRA (D2A) data collection solution with APRA Connect in response to the COVID-19 situation. APRA will advise when the project recommences. 


The APRA Connect test environment will help entities, Service Providers and RegTechs to:

  • familiarise themselves with the features and functionalities of APRA Connect
  • identify any changes required to existing systems and processes
  • engage with APRA on new collection design.

The APRA Connect test environment is planned to be available as a permanent feature from the end of June 2020. Returns will be available in the test environment before entities are required to submit them in APRA Connect. The test environment will also be used to support the design of new collections and APRA’s consultations with industry.

Test environment security and performance

Information collected through the test environment will be encrypted in transit and at rest as defined by the Australian Government Information Security Manual. This applies to all interactions with APRA Connect, including user authentication and access, transmission of entity returns and storage of submitted data. The data uploaded in the test environment will be secure and will not be accessible by other entities using the test environment.
