Schedule
Reporting Standard ARS 112.2 Standardised Credit Risk – Off-balance Sheet Exposures comprises the 25 pages commencing on the following page.

Reporting Standard ARS 112.2
Standardised Credit Risk – Off-balance Sheet Exposures
Objective of this Reporting Standard
This Reporting Standard outlines the overall requirements for the provision of information to APRA relating to an authorised deposit-taking institution’s off-balance sheet exposures.
It incorporates reporting form ARF 112.2A Standardised Credit Risk — Off-balance Sheet Exposures and should be read in conjunction with Prudential Standard APS 112 Capital Adequacy: Standardised Approach to Credit Risk.
Authority
1.             This Reporting Standard is made under section 13 of the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001.
Purpose
2.             Information collected in reporting form ARF 112.2A Standardised Credit Risk — Off-balance Sheet Exposures (ARF 112.2A) is used by APRA for the purpose of prudential supervision including assessing compliance with Prudential Standard APS 112 Capital Adequacy: Standardised Approach to Credit Risk (APS 112). It may also be used by the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Application and commencement
3.             This Reporting Standard applies to an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) that satisfies the following criteria:
(a)           it is applying the standardised approach to credit risk to all or part of its off-balance sheet exposures for capital adequacy purposes (refer to APS 112 or Prudential Standard APS 113 Capital Adequacy: Internal Ratings-based Approach to Credit Risk, as appropriate); and
(b)          it is included in one of the classes of ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies, as set out in the following table.
Class of ADI
Applicable

Bank – Advanced or Applicant Advanced
Yes

Bank – Standardised
Yes

Branch of a Foreign Bank
Yes

Building Society
Yes

Credit Union
Yes

Specialist Credit Card Institution (SCCI)[1]
Yes

Provider of Purchased Payment Facilities
No

Other ADI
Yes

 
This Reporting Standard may also apply to the non-operating holding company (NOHC) of an ADI (refer to paragraph 7).
 
4.             Subject to paragraph 5, this Reporting Standard applies to reporting periods commencing on or after 1 April 2013.
5.             APRA may, by notice in writing, require an ADI to submit the information required by this Reporting Standard for the reporting period ending 31 March 2013. This information must be provided to APRA within 30 business days after receiving written notice from APRA. 
Information required        
6.             An ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide APRA with the information required by the version of ARF 112.2A designated for an ADI at Level 1 for each reporting period.
7.             If an ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies is part of a Level 2 group, the ADI must also provide APRA with the information required by the version of ARF 112.2A designated for an ADI at Level 2 for each reporting period, unless the ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised NOHC. If the ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised NOHC, the ADI’s immediate parent NOHC must provide APRA with the information required by that form for each reporting period. In doing so, the immediate parent NOHC must comply with this Reporting Standard (other than paragraphs 6 and 13) as if it were the relevant ADI.
Forms and method of submission
8.             The information required by this Reporting Standard must be given to APRA in electronic form, using one of the electronic submission mechanisms provided by the ‘Direct to APRA’ (also known as ‘D2A’) application.
Note: the Direct to APRA application software may be obtained from APRA.
Reporting periods and due dates
9.             Subject to paragraph 10, an ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard in respect of each quarter based on the financial year (within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001) of the ADI.
10.         APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods, or specified reporting periods, for a particular ADI, to require it to provide the information required by this Reporting Standard more frequently, or less frequently, having regard to:
(a)           the particular circumstances of the ADI;
(b)          the extent to which the information is required for the purposes of the prudential supervision of the ADI; and
(c)           the requirements of the Reserve Bank of Australia or the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
11.         The information required by this Reporting Standard must be provided to APRA in accordance with the following table. The right hand column of the table sets out the number of business days after the end of the reporting period to which the information relates, within which information must be submitted to APRA by an ADI in each of the classes set out in the same row in the left hand column.
Class of ADI

Other ADI[2]
20

 
In certain cases an ADI may be both a ‘bank – advanced or applicant advanced’ and a ‘bank – standardised’.  The instructions associated with ARF 112.2A set out the relevant reporting requirements and timeframes in those circumstances.
12.         APRA may grant an ADI an extension of a due date, in writing, in which case the new due date for the provision of the information will be the date on the notice of extension.
Quality control
13.         The information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard (except for the information required under paragraph 7) must be the product of processes and controls that have been reviewed and tested by the external auditor of the ADI. GS 012 Prudential Reporting Requirements for Auditors of Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions, issued by the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board provides guidance on the scope and nature of the review and testing required from external auditors. This review and testing must be done on an annual basis or more frequently if necessary to enable the external auditor to form an opinion on the accuracy and reliability of the information.
14.         All information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard must be subject to processes and controls developed by the ADI for the internal review and authorisation of that information. It is the responsibility of the Board and senior management of the ADI to ensure that an appropriate set of policies and procedures for the authorisation of information submitted to APRA is in place.
Authorisation
15.         When an ADI submits information under this Reporting Standard using the D2A software, it will be necessary for an officer of the ADI to digitally sign, authorise and encrypt the relevant information. For this purpose, APRA’s certificate authority will issue ‘digital certificates’, for use with the software, to officers of the ADI who have authority from the ADI to transmit the information to APRA.
Transitional
16.         An ADI 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).
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 ADI 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 ADI 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 ADI is still required to provide any overdue reporting documents in accordance with the old Reporting Standard.

Reporting Form ARF 112.2A
Standardised Credit Risk – Off-balance Sheet Exposures
Instruction Guide
This instruction guide is designed to assist in the completion of the reporting form Standardised Credit Risk — Off-balance Sheet Exposures. This form captures the risk-weighted assets (RWA) relating to an authorised deposit-taking institution’s (ADI’s) off-balance sheet exposures under the standardised approach to credit risk. In completing this form, ADIs should refer to Prudential Standard APS 112 Capital Adequacy: Standardised Approach to Credit Risk (APS 112).
General directions and notes
Reporting entity
This form is to be completed at Level 1 and Level 2[3] by each ADI that satisfies the following criteria:
 
1.             it is applying the standardised approach to credit risk to all or part of the ADI’s off-balance sheet exposures for capital adequacy purposes (refer to APS 112 or Prudential Standard APS 113 Capital Adequacy: Internal Ratings-based Approach to Credit Risk); and
 
2.             it is included in one of the classes of ADI to which this form applies, as set out in the following table.
Class of ADI

Bank – Standardised
Yes

Branch of a Foreign Bank[5]
Yes

Building Society

Credit Union
Yes

Specialist Credit Card Institution (SCCI)[6]
Yes

Provider of Purchased Payment Facilities
No

Other ADI

If an ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised non-operating holding company (NOHC), the report at Level 2 is to be provided by the ADI’s immediate parent NOHC.[7] 
Branches of foreign banks and SCCIs operating through branches in Australia (i.e. are incorporated in an overseas jurisdiction) are only required to complete column 1 Notional principal amount in all sections of this reporting form.
All ADIs to which this form applies (as set out in the table above), other than branches of foreign banks and SCCIs operating through branches in Australia, are required to report the components of their credit value adjustment (CVA) risk capital charge through this form.
Securitisation deconsolidation principle
Except as otherwise specified in these instructions, the following applies:
 
1.                  Where an ADI (or a member of its Level 2 consolidated group) participates in a securitisation that meets APRA’s operational requirements for regulatory capital relief under Prudential Standard APS 120 Securitisation (APS 120):
(a)           special purpose vehicles (SPVs) holding securitised assets may be treated as non-consolidated independent third parties for regulatory reporting purposes, irrespective of whether the SPVs (or their assets) are consolidated for accounting purposes;
(b)          the assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of the relevant SPVs may be excluded from the ADI’s reported amounts in APRA’s regulatory reporting returns; and
(c)           the underlying assets (i.e. the pool) under such a securitisation may be excluded from the calculation of the ADI’s regulatory capital (refer to APS 120). However, the ADI must still hold regulatory capital for the securitisation exposures[8] that it retains or acquires and such exposures are to be reported in reporting form ARF 120.0 Standardised – Securitisation or the series of reporting forms ARF 120.1A to ARF 120.1C IRB – Securitisation (as appropriate). The RWA relating to such securitisation exposures must also be reported in reporting form ARF 110.0 Capital Adequacy.
2.                  Where an ADI (or a member of its Level 2 consolidated group) participates in a securitisation that does not meet APRA’s operational requirements for regulatory capital relief under APS 120, or the ADI elects to treat the securitised assets as on-balance sheet assets under APS 112 or Prudential Standard APS 113 Capital Adequacy: Internal Ratings-based Approach to Credit Risk, such assets are to be reported as on-balance sheet assets in APRA’s regulatory reporting returns. In addition, these assets must also be reported as a part of the ADI’s total securitised assets within reporting form ARF 120.2 Securitisation – Supplementary Items.
Reporting period and timeframes for lodgement
The form is to be completed as at the last day of the stated reporting period (i.e. the relevant quarter). The following table sets out the number of business days after the end of the relevant reporting period, within which each class of ADI must submit data to APRA.

An immediate parent NOHC must submit data to APRA within the same timeframe as its subsidiary ADI.
 
Where both ‘Bank – Standardised’ and ‘Bank – Advanced or Applicant Advanced’ reporting requirements and timeframes apply to an ADI
 
In the following cases an Australian-owned bank or a foreign subsidiary bank must meet reporting requirements and timeframes applicable to both a ‘Bank – Advanced or Applicant Advanced’ and a ‘Bank – Standardised’:
 
1.             where the ADI is operating under the standardised approach to credit risk under APS 112, but has applied for IRB approval under APS 113, in which case the ADI will be both a ‘Bank – Advanced or Applicant Advanced’ and a ‘Bank – Standardised’; and
 
2.             where the ADI has received IRB approval under APS 113 in respect of most (but not all) of its operations, and has approval for partial use of the standardised approach under APS 112 for the remainder of its operations.
 
Such an ADI must report under ARF 112.2A (the form) as follows:
 
 
Description of ADI
Reporting requirement
Timeframes for lodgement

ADI is operating under APS 112 standardised approach, but has applied to adopt IRB approach for all its operations

Scope
The risk-weighting process used for measuring the off-balance sheet credit exposures of an ADI covers all or part of the ADI’s off-balance sheet exposures, including both market-related and non-market related transactions that are subject to the standardised approach to credit risk, except the following specifically excluded items:
 
1.                  securitisation exposures, which are subject to the requirements of APS 120; and
 
2.                  items subject to capital requirements under Prudential Standard APS 116 Capital Adequacy: Market Risk.  However, the trading book exposures that expose the ADI to counterparty credit risk are to be included in this form.
 
Definitions
In this instruction guide and its corresponding reporting form (ARF 112.2A), the following expressions have the defined meanings as set out below:
Off-balance sheet exposures
Off-balance sheet exposures are exposures that need to be converted to a credit equivalent amount (CEA) before they can be risk-weighted. Items that were treated as off-balance sheet items for the purposes of this form prior to the adoption of the Australian equivalents of the International Financial Reporting Standards (AIFRS) will continue to be treated as off-balance sheet items in the post-AIFRS context.
Netting
Netting refers to the process under a netting agreement of combining all relevant outstanding transactions between two counterparties and reducing them to a single net sum for a party to either pay or receive (refer to Attachment J to APS 112).
Specific instructions (for selected items)
Guidance on columns 1 to 4 (Section A) and 1 to 6 (Section B)
Column 1 - Notional principal amount
The notional principal amount is the face value or gross amount of a given off-balance sheet transaction and not the fair value. Absolute values should be reported.
Column 2 - Credit conversion factor
A credit conversion factor (CCF) is the percentage value used to convert an off-balance sheet exposure into an on-balance sheet equivalent (i.e. the CEA). CCFs are generally pre-defined in the form and correspond to the CCFs detailed in Attachment B to APS 112 for non-market-related and market-related off-balance sheet exposures. Where CCFs have not been pre-defined in the form, the ADI does not need to report a CCF as more than one CCF may have been used in relation to that exposure type (see the section below for column 3 Credit equivalent amount).
Column 3 - Potential future exposure (Section B only)
The potential future exposure amount is calculated by multiplying the notional principal amount of a market-related contract (regardless of whether the contract has a zero, positive or negative mark-to-market value) by the relevant CCF, as detailed in Attachment B to APS 112. It represents an ‘add-on’ component to the current exposure amount and is used in the current exposure method to calculate the CEA of market-related off-balance sheet credit exposures.
Generally, the potential future exposure amount is a derived field in the form. In some cases, however, the amount must be entered by the ADI. The potential future exposure amount for some off-balance sheet exposure types may consist of several discrete exposures, each potentially attracting different CCFs. The ADI must, by reference to Attachment B to APS 112, determine the appropriate CCF(s) to be applied to the exposure(s) to calculate the potential future exposure amount for that off-balance sheet exposure type and report the total as a single potential future exposure amount.
Column 4 - Current exposure (Section B only)
The current exposure amount for each type of market-related off-balance sheet exposure is the sum of the positive mark-to-market value (or replacement cost) of each individual contract within each classification.
Column 3 - Credit equivalent amount (Column 5 in Section B)
A CEA is the on-balance sheet equivalent of an off-balance sheet exposure.
Non-market-related off-balance sheet transactions
In relation to a non-market-related off-balance sheet transaction, CEA is calculated by multiplying the notional principal amount of a particular transaction by the relevant CCF.
Generally, the CEA is a derived field in the form. In some cases, however, the CEA must be entered by the ADI. The CEA for some off-balance sheet exposure types may consist of several discrete exposures, each potentially attracting different CCFs. The ADI must, by reference to Attachment B to APS 112, determine the appropriate CCF(s) to be applied to the exposure(s) to calculate the CEA for that off-balance sheet exposure type and report the total as a single CEA.
Credit derivative transactions in the banking book are classified as non-market-related off-balance sheet transactions.
Market-related off-balance sheet transactions
These include all market-related transactions held in the banking and trading books that give rise to off-balance sheet credit risk. The CEA of these transactions, whether held in the banking or trading book, must be determined by using the current exposure method. Refer to Attachment B to APS 112 for details of how to calculate CEAs for various types of transactions under the current exposure method.
Credit derivative transactions in the trading book are classified as market-related off-balance sheet transactions.
Column 4 - RWA (Column 6 in Section B)
The RWA amount of a given off-balance sheet transaction that gives rise to credit exposure is calculated by multiplying the CEA of a transaction by the risk-weight applicable to the counterparty or type of assets (refer to Attachment A to APS 112).   Where a transaction is secured by eligible collateral or there is an eligible guarantee, credit derivative or netting arrangement in place, the ADI may use the credit risk mitigation (CRM) techniques, detailed in Attachments G, H, I and J to APS 112, to reduce the capital requirement of that exposure.
Generally, the RWA is a derived field in the form. In some cases, however, the amount must be entered by the ADI.  The RWA amount for some off-balance sheet exposure types may consist of several discrete exposures, each potentially attracting different risk-weights. The ADI must, by reference to Attachment A to APS 112, determine the appropriate risk-weight(s) to be applied to the exposure(s) to calculate the RWA for that off-balance sheet exposure type and report the total as a single RWA amount.
Section A: Non-market-related off-balance sheet credit exposures
Refer to Attachment B to APS 112 and Prudential Practice Guide APG 112 Standardised Approach to Credit Risk (APG 112) for further details of the definitions of the following non-market related transactions.
1.1 Direct credit substitutes
Include:
·                potential credit exposures arising from the issue of guarantees and credit derivatives;
·                confirmation of letters of credit;
·                issue of standby letters of credit serving as financial guarantees for loans, securities and any other financial liabilities;
·                bills endorsed under bill endorsement lines; and
·                any other direct credit substitutes.
 
1.2 Performance-related contingencies
Include:
·                issue of performance bonds;
·                bid bonds;
·                warranties;
·                indemnities; and
·                standby letters of credit in relation to a non-monetary obligation of a counterparty under a particular transaction.
1.3 Trade-related contingencies
Include:
·                     documentary letters of credit issued;
·                     acceptances on trade bills;
·                     shipping guarantees issued; and
·                     any other trade-related contingencies.
1.4 Lending of securities or posting of securities as collateral
Include:
·                     repurchase/reverse repurchase agreements; and
·                     securities lending/borrowing transactions.
1.5 Assets sold with recourse
Include any asset sales (to the extent that such assets are not included on-balance sheet) by an ADI where the holder of the asset is entitled to ‘put’ the asset back to the ADI within an agreed period or under certain prescribed circumstances, e.g. deterioration in the value or credit quality of the asset concerned.
These transactions are risk-weighted according to the type of assets or the issuer of securities (as appropriate) and not according to the counterparty with whom the transaction is made, where the credit risk associated with the underlying asset which has been sold (temporarily with recourse) or purchased, remains with the ADI.
1.6 Forward asset purchases
Include:
·                     commitments to purchase at a specified future date and on pre-arranged terms; and
·                     a loan, security or other asset from another party, including written put options on specified assets with the character of a credit enhancement.
Exclude written put options expressed in terms of market rates for currencies or financial instruments bearing no credit risk.
1.7 Partly paid shares and securities
Include:
·                     any amounts owing on the uncalled portion of partly paid shares; and
·                     securities held by an ADI that represent commitments with certain drawdown by the issuer at a future date.
1.8 Placements of forward deposits
Include any amounts relating to placements of forward deposits.  Placements of forward deposits include any agreement between an ADI and another party whereby the ADI will place a deposit at an agreed rate of interest with that party at a predetermined future date.
1.9 Note issuance and underwriting facilities
Include any note issuance and underwriting facilities.  These involve arrangements whereby a borrower may drawdown funds up to a prescribed limit over a predefined period by making repeated note issues to the market and where, should the issue prove unable to be placed in the market, the unplaced amount is to be taken up or funds made available by an ADI being committed as an underwriter of the facility.
1.10 Credit derivatives used for acquiring credit risk exposure
Include any other credit derivatives used by the ADI for acquiring credit risk exposure that are not already included in item 1.1.2 Credit derivatives – sold protection in the banking book.
1.11 Other commitments
The guidance in this section is applicable to the following items:
1.11.1 Commitments with certain drawdown;
1.11.2 Commitments with an original maturity of one year or less;
1.11.3 Commitments with an original maturity of over one year;
1.11.4 Commitments that can be unconditionally cancelled at any time without notice; and
1.11.5 Irrevocable standby commitments provided under APRA approved industry support arrangements.
Where the non-market-related off-balance sheet transaction is an undrawn or partially undrawn facility, the ADI is to include the maximum unused portion of the commitment that could be drawn during the remaining period to maturity for the calculation of the CEA. Any drawn portion of a commitment forms part of an ADI’s on-balance sheet credit exposure.
With regard to irrevocable commitments to provide off-balance sheet facilities, the original maturity will be measured from the commencement of the commitment up until the time the associated facility expires. For example, an irrevocable commitment, with an original maturity of six months, to provide finance with a nine-month term, is deemed to have an original maturity of 15 months.
Irrevocable commitments to provide off-balance sheet facilities are to be assigned the lower of the two applicable CCFs. For example, an irrevocable commitment with an original maturity of six months to provide a guarantee in support of a counterparty for a period of nine months attracts the 50 per cent CCF applicable to the commitment, as opposed to the 100 per cent CCF applicable to the guarantee.
Undrawn balances of revolving facilities (e.g. credit cards, overdrafts) are to be reported in item 1.11.4 Commitments that can be unconditionally cancelled at any time without notice.
All commitments are to be included in the capital calculation regardless of whether or not they contain ‘material adverse change’ clauses or any other provisions that are intended to relieve an ADI of its obligations under certain conditions.
1.12 All other non-market-related off-balance sheet transactions
Include any other non-market-related off-balance sheet transactions that give rise to credit risk but are not specifically identified in Attachment B to APS 112. For any such transaction, an ADI must consult APRA on the appropriate CCF to be used for calculating the CEA of that particular transaction for capital adequacy purposes (refer to Attachment B to APS 112).
1.13 Total non-market-related off-balance sheet risk-weighted credit exposures
Derived field calculated as the sum of the credit equivalent amount (column 3) and the RWA (column 4) for all of the different transaction types in section A of this form.
Section B: Market-related off-balance sheet credit exposures
The CEA of an off-balance sheet market-related transaction, whether held in the banking or trading book, must be determined using the current exposure method, in accordance with the requirements of Attachment B to APS 112.
An ADI may net off-balance sheet claims and obligations arising from market-related contracts across both the banking and trading books, arising from contracts with a single counterparty, where the relevant obligations are covered by eligible bilateral netting arrangements (refer to Attachment J to APS 112).
2.1 to 2.6 Bilateral exposures
Enter values for bilateral (i.e. non-centrally cleared) positions in sections 2.1 to 2.6.
Refer to APG 112 for definitions of the following types of market-related off-balance sheet transactions:
·                     interest rate contracts;
·                     foreign exchange and gold contracts;
·                     equity contracts;
·                     precious metal contracts (other than gold);
·                     other commodity contracts (other than precious metals); and
·                     other market-related contracts.
2.1.4 Contracts with residual maturity > 1 year that are subject to a CCF floor
For contracts that are structured to settle outstanding exposures following specified payment dates and where the terms are reset such that the mark-to-market value of the contract is zero on these specified dates, the residual maturity should be set equal to the time until the next reset date. In the case of interest rate contracts with these features with a remaining maturity of more than one year, the CCF to be applied is subject to a floor of 0.5 per cent even if there are reset dates of a shorter maturity.  Such interest rate contracts are to be reported in this item.
2.1.5, 2.2.4, 2.3.4, 2.4.4, 2.5.4 & 2.6.4 Contracts with multiple exchanges of principal
For contracts with multiple exchanges of principal, the CCFs are to be multiplied by the number of remaining payments (i.e. exchanges of principal) still to be made under the contract.
2.1.6, 2.2.5, 2.3.5, 2.4.5, 2.5.5 & 2.6.5 Counterparty credit risk
An ADI must use the potential future exposure add-on factors in the calculation of the counterparty credit risk charge for single name credit default swaps and single name total-rate-of-return swaps in the trading book, as detailed in Attachment B to APS 112.
