Proposed revisions to the credit risk management framework for authorised deposit-taking institutions

The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has proposed updating its prudential standard on credit risk management requirements for authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs).

APS 220 was last substantially updated in 2006, and there has been significant evolution in credit risk practices since then, including more sophisticated analytical techniques and information systems. APRA’s plan to modernise the standard was prompted by its recent supervisory focus on credit standards, and also reflects contemporary credit risk management practices.

The proposed reforms are due to be implemented from 1 July 2020. See information relating to this consultation below:
