Strengthening crisis preparedness

APRA is consulting on new prudential standards to strengthen the preparedness of banks, insurers and superannuation trustees to respond to future financial crises.

December 2021


On 2 December 2021, APRA released for consultation a discussion paper and two draft prudential standards to strengthen crisis preparedness across banks, insurers and superannuation trustees. 

Draft Prudential Standard CPS 190 Financial Contingency Planning introduces requirements for all APRA-regulated entities to develop contingency plans to respond to financial stress by either recovering their financial resilience or exiting APRA-regulated activities in an orderly manner.

Draft Prudential Standard CPS 900 Resolution Planning requires large or complex entities, or those that provide critical functions to the economy, to be prepared for resolution to minimise the impact on the community and the financial system. 

Written submissions are requested by 29 April 2022. 

The discussion paper and draft prudential standards can be found below:
