September 2023 Quarterly Insurance Statistical Publication Break

Thursday 24 August 2023

This image shows APRA's contact details: AUSTRALIAN PRUDENTIAL REGULATION AUTHORITY - 1 Martin Place (Level 12), Sydney, NSW 2000 - GPO Box 9836, Sydney, NSW 2001. Telephone: 02 9210 3000, Website: Australian coat of arms - APRA



This is to advise that APRA will not be releasing the September 2023 editions of the quarterly insurance statistical publications ordinarily released in late November 2023.

APRA has made significant changes to its capital and reporting framework for insurance with effect from 1 July 2023. These changes reflect the implementation of Australian Accounting Standards Board 17 Insurance Contracts (AASB17), and revisions to the capital framework for private health insurers.

The September 2023 returns will be the first entity reporting period impacted by the capital and reporting framework changes. Due to the changes in the reporting framework, data items traditionally contained within the quarterly insurance statistical publications cannot be calculated until the December 2023 reporting period. APRA is also cognisant that as the industry transitions to the new framework and to the APRA Connect data collection system there may be increased iterations of submissions. 

To ensure that the statistical publications continue to robust and accurate, APRA has determined that it will not be releasing the September 2023 editions of the following quarterly insurance statistical publications:


Impacted September 23 quarter statistical publication

General Insurance

Quarterly General Insurance Performance Statistics

Quarterly General Insurance Institution-level Statistics

Life Insurance

Quarterly Life Insurance Performance Statistics

Private Health Insurance

Quarterly Private Health Insurance Statistics1

Consultation and next release

The release of the impacted publications will resume for the December 2023 editions, the content, structure and release timing of which will be subject to a formal consultation with stakeholders in late 2023. 

Should there be any questions, please contact

Yours sincerely,


Bruce Young
Executive Director
Technology & Data Division
