Changes to the Securitisation System Reporting Guidance

The RBA has updated the Securitisation System reporting guidance. The updated guidance is unchanged from the draft version published on 1 June 2017. The RBA will be implementing a number of validation rules from August 2017 that will assist issuers in meeting the updated requirements. These validation rules will initially be set to a ‘warning’ severity, before switching to a ‘fail’ severity from 1 July 2018.

As part of the industry consultation phase for this reporting guidance update, the RBA received a number of questions on the data validation process. The exact form of these rules, including any tolerances that may be applicable, will be announced when the rules are switched on to ‘warning’. The RBA will batch together similar rules where possible to ensure that necessary system changes for Information Providers can be completed efficiently.

Below are the updated reporting guidance documents:
