APRA is finalising several minor updates to the prudential framework. These updates are technical clarifications and are not material changes in policy settings. 

Five submissions were received on the proposed minor amendments. Non-confidential submissions are available on APRA’s website. High-level feedback on the minor update process has been noted. Submissions did not object to the proposed updates.

The updates finalised today are summarised in the following table. They remain largely unchanged from the proposed updates consulted on in June of this year.1

The minor framework updates process is an initiative under APRA’s strategy to modernise the prudential architecture.3 This approach to minor updates is to ensure that between comprehensive reviews of prudential standards and guidance the framework is updated in a timely manner. APRA will take on board feedback on the minor update process received via submissions. Consultation on the next round of minor updates is planned for early 2024. 

Yours sincerely,
