The Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) employs a six-monthly release management cycle to enhance and fix defects in the PPSR. Production releases generally occur in April and October, but may vary depending on the scope of the release.
AFSA prioritises PPSR fixes and enhancements in consultation with industry, PPS Operations and stakeholder forum members.
See the PPSR enhancements list.
Industry Integration Period
Major releases are deployed to Discovery prior to Production. The new release is made available in Discovery at least two weeks prior to the Production release to enable clients to familiarise themselves with the new functionality.
If you find functionality or performance issues in Discovery, log an incident.
Industry is encouraged to provide feedback on the release management cycle and PPSR through their peak bodies or directly to AFSA. For more information on how to give feedback and our enhancement list, see industry feedback.
Business to government (B2G) Web Services Description Language (WSDL)
If a release requires changes to the B2G WSDL, associated documentation will be made available. In addition, an extended industry integration period will be provided to allow adequate build and testing of B2G solutions.
