Application and commencement
3.             This Reporting Standard applies to all general insurers authorised under the Insurance Act 1973 (insurers) that are lenders mortgage insurers under paragraph 4 of Prudential Standard GPS 001 Definitions. This Reporting Standard applies for reporting periods ending on or after 31 December 2014.  
Information required
4.             An insurer must provide APRA with the information required by the GRF 116.1 series for each reporting period.
Forms and method of submission
5.             The information required by this Reporting Standard must be given to APRA in electronic format using the ‘Direct to APRA’ application or, where ‘Direct to APRA’ is not available, by a method notified by APRA prior to submission.
Note: The ‘Direct to APRA’ application software may be obtained from APRA.
 
Reporting periods and due dates
6.             Subject to paragraph 7, an insurer must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard:
(a)           in respect of each quarter based on the financial year of the insurer; and
(b)          in respect of each financial year of the insurer.
Note: The annual information required from an insurer by paragraphs 4, 5 and 6(b), together with certain annual information required by other reporting standards, will form part of the insurer’s yearly statutory accounts within the meaning of section 3 of the Insurance Act 1973 (the Insurance Act). This means that the information must be audited in accordance with paragraph 49J(1)(a) of the Insurance Act.  Under subsection 49J(3), the principal auditor of the insurer must give the insurer a certificate relating to the yearly statutory accounts, and that certificate must contain statements of the auditor’s opinions on the matters required by the prudential standards to be dealt with in the certificate.
7.             If, having regard to the particular circumstances of an insurer, APRA considers it necessary or desirable to obtain information more or less frequently than as provided by subparagraph 6(a) or 6(b), APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods, or specify reporting periods, for the particular insurer.  
8.             The information required by this Reporting Standard in respect of an insurer must be provided to APRA:
(a)           within the time stated in Reporting Standard GRS 001 Reporting Requirements (GRS 001); or
(b)          in the case of information provided in accordance with paragraph 7, within the time specified by notice in writing.

Quality control
9.             The information provided by an insurer under this Reporting Standard must be the product of systems, processes and controls that have been reviewed and tested by the Appointed Auditor of the insurer. This will require the Appointed Auditor to review and test the insurer’s systems, processes and controls designed to enable the insurer to report reliable financial information to APRA. This review and testing must be done on:
(a)           an annual basis or more frequently if necessary to enable the Appointed Auditor to form an opinion on the reliability and accuracy of data; and
(b)          at least a limited assurance engagement consistent with professional standards and guidance notes issued by the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AUASB) as may be amended from time to time, to the extent that they are not inconsistent with the requirements of Prudential Standard GPS 310 Audit and Related Matters.
10.         All information provided by an insurer under this Reporting Standard must be subject to systems, processes and controls developed by the insurer for the internal review and authorisation of that information. It is the responsibility of the Board and senior management of the insurer to ensure that an appropriate set of policies and procedures for the authorisation of data submitted to APRA is in place.
Authorisation
11.         When an officer, or agent, of an insurer provides the information required by this Reporting Standard using the ‘Direct to APRA’ software it will be necessary for an officer, or agent, to digitally sign the relevant information using a digital certificate acceptable to APRA.
12.         If an insurer provides the information required by this Reporting Standard through an agent who submits using the ‘Direct to APRA’ software on the insurer’s behalf, the insurer must:
(a)           obtain from the agent a copy of the completed form with the information provided to APRA; and
(b)          retain the completed copy.
13.         An officer, or agent, of an insurer who submits the information under this Reporting Standard for, or on behalf of, the insurer must be authorised by either:
(a)           the Principal Executive Officer of the insurer; or
(b)          the Chief Financial Officer of the insurer.
Variations
14.         APRA may, by written notice to the insurer, vary the reporting requirements of the GRF 116.1 series in relation to that insurer.
Transition
15.         An insurer must report under the old reporting standard in respect of a transitional reporting period. For these purposes:
old reporting standard means the reporting standard revoked in the determination making this Reporting Standard (being the reporting standard which this Reporting Standard replaces); and
transitional reporting period means a reporting period under the old reporting standard:
(a)           which ended before the date of revocation of the old reporting standard; and
(b)          in relation to which the insurer was required, under the old reporting standard, to report by a date on or after the date of revocation of the old reporting standard.
 
Note: For the avoidance of doubt, if an insurer was required to report under an old reporting standard, and the reporting documents were due before the date of revocation of the old reporting standard, the insurer is still required to provide any overdue reporting documents in accordance with the old reporting standard.

These instructions must be read in conjunction with the general instruction guide.
Instructions for specific items
(4)  Summary
These columns represent the total sum insured and probable maximum losses (PMLs) across all loans types, coverage types and origination channels.
Amounts are automatically derived from corresponding amounts in GRF 116.1 Probable Maximum Loss for LMIs – Standard Loans (GRF 116.1), GRF 116.2 Probable Maximum Loss for LMIs – Non-Standard Loans (GRF 116.2) and GRF 116.3 Probable Maximum Loss for LMIs – Commercial Loans (GRF 116.3).
1.1         Standard loans
This is automatically calculated as the sum of Items 1.1.1 to 1.1.4.
1.1.1    ADI - 100 per cent and top cover
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 5 and 9 of Table 1.1 in GRF 116.1.
1.1.2    ADI - pool cover
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 4 and 7 of Table 1.2 in GRF 116.1.
1.1.3    Non-APRA regulated - 100 per cent and top cover
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 5 and 9 of Table 2.1 in GRF 116.1.
1.1.4    Non-APRA regulated - pool cover
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 4 and 7 of Table 2.2 in GRF 116.1.
1.2         Non-standard loans
This is automatically calculated as the sum of Items 1.2.1 to 1.2.4.
1.2.1    ADI - 100 per cent and top cover
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 5 and 9 of Table 1.1 in GRF 116.2.
1.2.2    ADI - pool cover
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 4 and 7 of Table 1.2 in GRF 116.2.

This amount is automatically derived from Columns 5 and 9 of Table 2.1 in GRF 116.2.
1.2.4    Non-APRA regulated - pool cover     
This amount is automatically derived from Columns 4 and 7 of Table 2.2 in GRF 116.2.
1.3         Commercial loans     
This is automatically calculated as the sum of Items 1.3.1 and 1.3.2.
1.3.1    ADI
This amount is automatically derived from GRF 116.3.
1.3.2    Non-APRA regulated
This amount is automatically derived from GRF 116.3.
1.4         Total 
This is automatically calculated as the sum of Items 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3.
(5)          LMI Concentration Risk Charge (LMICRC) calculation  
This represents the years for the Prescribed Stress Scenario which is in the form of a three-year economic or property downturn. The PML must be allocated in the proportion of 25 per cent to year one, 50 per cent to year two and 25 per cent to year three of the downturn.
2.1.       PML  
This represents the total PML across all loan types, coverage types and origination channels. Total PML is automatically allocated in the proportions of 25 per cent to year one, 50 per cent to year two and 25 per cent to year three of the Prescribed Stress Scenario.
2.2.       Adjustment to the PML  
For a lenders mortgage insurer (LMI) no longer writing new business (i.e. in run-off), the sum insured is expected to decrease over the three-year scenario and it may be appropriate for an LMI in run-off to adjust its PML downwards. The methodology for adjusting an LMI’s PML in a run-off situation must be approved by APRA and documented in the LMI’s Reinsurance Management Strategy (ReMS).
A reduction in PML is to be entered as a positive amount. Do not enter any other adjustments to PML in this field.
2.3.       Adjusted PML 
This is automatically calculated as Item 2.1 less Item 2.2.
2.4.       Available reinsurance    
Report the amount of available reinsurance for each of the three years of the Prescribed Stress Scenario. The methodology for calculating available reinsurance is detailed in Attachment A of GPS 116.
2.5.       Allowable reinsurance                    
This is the lesser of Available reinsurance and 60 per cent of the Adjusted PML. It is automatically calculated by the form.
2.6.       PML net of reinsurance                  
This is automatically calculated as Item 2.3 less Item 2.5.
2.7.       Net premiums liability deduction                   
In determining the LMI Concentration Risk Charge (LMICRC), this is the value of the deduction from the PML, allowed under GPS 116, for net premiums liability of the LMI that relates to an economic downturn.
It is to be reported as a positive amount.
2.8.       Adjustments to LMICRC as approved by APRA                    
If APRA is of the view that the Standard Method for calculating the LMICRC component of the prescribed capital amount does not produce an appropriate outcome in respect of a reporting insurer, or a reporting insurer has used inappropriate judgement or estimation in calculating the LMICRC, APRA may adjust the LMICRC calculation for that reporting insurer.
