APRA releases response to consultations on ADI data confidentiality and public disclosure requirements

Thursday 2 September 2021

The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has announced its decision to make key entity-level authorised deposit-taking institutions’ (ADIs’) financial metrics non-confidential in a new centralised publication from 2022. 

The letter issued today responds to the consultation released in 2019 on the confidentiality of data used in the ADI quarterly publications and additional historical data, which was paused in response to COVID-19, and the subsequent consultation on the confidentiality of key ADI metrics released in 2020. 

APRA’s letter also outlines an updated timeline for revisions to Prudential Standard APS 330 Public Disclosure, which requires ADIs to publicly disclose key entity-specific information and data, to facilitate linking these public disclosures to the new APRA publication.

The response letter and non-confidential submissions are available on the APRA website at: Confidentiality of data used in ADI quarterly publications and additional historical data.
