Direct to APRA (D2A)

D2A is a secure and user-friendly electronic data submission system that enables APRA-regulated financial entities to lodge statutory returns.

APRA is replacing D2A

APRA has commenced a major data transformation program to keep pace with advancements in data, analytics and technology. Replacing our data collection tool, Direct to APRA (D2A), is critical to this program.

Validation and derivation rules

These are updated two weeks prior to the end of each quarter.

Breach reporting

If an APRA-regulated institution becomes aware that it has breached (or will breach) a prudential requirement, and that breach is ‘significant’, it must give APRA a written report.
