iSignthis Ltd (ASX: ISX | FRA: TA8) (“The Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received communications from its auditors Grant Thornton Australia Ltd and its IT Security Auditors, Security Centric Pty Ltd (“the Auditors”), regarding the use of the Probanx Coreplus core banking platform in Australia to satisfy its ADI operations and APRA requirements.
The reports received from the Auditors have been submitted to the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) as part of the application process that is currently ongoing/progressing by iSignthis eMoney (AU) Pty Ltd for an Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI) license.
All APRA regulated entities must adhere to CPS 234 by 1st July 2019, with third party verification of an operative and compliant core banking system being a key milestone towards achieving ADI licensing.
