APRA's new Data Collection Solution: Subscriber Update 10

30 July 2019

APRA is pleased to provide an update on our new Data Collection Solution. We are confident the new solution will provide an effective way for entities to submit data to APRA in the future.

Today’s release is an update to the Implementation Plan for the new solution providing guidance to entities about the changes and how to prepare for the new solution. APRA issued the first version of this plan in April 2019.

Extension of implementation timeline

It is important to note from this update that APRA has chosen to extend the implementation timeline for the new solution further into 2020. We plan to make the test environment available in the first quarter of 2020, and go-live later in 2020. Confirmation of these revised dates will be provided by October 2019.

Since April 2019, APRA has been working closely with Vizor Software and Dimension Data to design and develop the new solution. We have been consulting with industry about the strategic direction and technical solution being implemented. It has become clear that additional time is needed for the transition to the new solution. Feedback from entities is that they are supportive of the additional time needed, and APRA will ensure entities can continue to report using Direct to APRA (D2A) after March 2020 until the new solution is finalised.

APRA invites you to read the Implementation Plan and engage with us directly if you have any questions about the new solution. We will provide ongoing updates as we approach key implementation milestones. For further information please visit APRA is replacing D2A, or email us at:
