2.1 What is RITS?

RITS, owned and operated by the Reserve Bank of Australia, is the system through which interbank settlement of payment obligations occurs. By value, the bulk of these are settled on a Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) basis. RTGS ensures that transactions between Members, or clients of different Members, will only proceed to settlement where the Paying Member has sufficient credit funds in its Exchange Settlement Account (ESA) at the Reserve Bank.

Transactions settled across RITS on an RTGS basis include those entered and settled directly through RITS (Cash Transfers, Low Value Settlement Service (LVSS) transactions

and batches) and those from external Feeder Systems:

Austraclear - a system which facilitates settlement of Commonwealth Government, semi government and private-sector debt securities transactions and Cash Transfers;

the SWIFT Payment Delivery System (SWIFT PDS) - a closed user group of Members • (administered by APCA) for sending payments to RITS via the SWIFT FIN-Copy service;

and CHESS-RTGS – for optional RTGS settlement of transactions in the Australian Stock • Exchange’s Clearing House Electronic Sub-Register System (CHESS) for equities transactions.

Settlement obligations for low value clearings are input into RITS and settled via the Low Value Settlement Service (LVSS). Obligations arising from cheques, credit and debit cards, and some bulk direct entry electronic payments are settled on a multilaterally netted basis at around 09:00. Most non-Government direct entry obligations are settled on a multilaterally netted basis throughout the Daily Settlement Session and Evening Settlement Session. Government direct entry obligations are settled during the Morning Settlement Session.

Obligations arising in the Australian Stock Exchange’s CHESS system are currently settled in one central party batch around lunchtime each day. Settlement of MasterCard’s domestic AUD obligations occurs in one multilateral batch each day. Obligations arising in the Property Exchange Australia Limited’s PEXA system are settled in many multilateral batches each day.

RITS was established in August 1991, originally as an electronic depository (see below), and was subsequently enhanced to provide access to Exchange Settlement Accounts, and from June 1998 provided for the real-time gross settlement of payments across ESAs.

Between August 1991 and February 2002, RITS provided an electronic settlement system and depository facility for transactions in Commonwealth Government Securities (CGS).

The Members of RITS agreed to move their holdings of CGS to the Austraclear System and RITS ceased to provide settlement and depository services for CGS.

All Australian-licensed banks and other ESA holders are Members of RITS, which provides the means of access to ESAs with the Reserve Bank.

Other institutions (termed ‘Non-Transaction Members’) join RITS to engage in RBA open market operations.

–  –  –

All settlements across RITS are final and irrevocable. They are protected from application of the zero-hour rule following the designation of RITS as an approved RTGS system by the Reserve Bank. 1 2.2 Facilities available to RITS Members

The following facilities are provided to Members in RITS:

real-time monitoring of ESAs;

• two-sided Cash Transfers;

• settlement of obligations arising from low-value payments, via the Low Value Settlement • Service (LVSS), including the ability to submit and enquire upon LVSS transactions overnight;

manual input of a File Settlement Instruction;

• selection of an FSI for recall and creation of a File Recall Instruction;

• real-time monitoring of interbank settlements across RITS, including those from • Austraclear, the SWIFT PDS and CHESS-RTGS;

Automated Information Facility (AIF), which allows Members to automate RTGS credit • and liquidity management within their own systems and receive ESA statements. The AIF is a SWIFT closed user group using the SWIFT FIN service, and the commands and enquiries it provides are a subset of those that are available in RITS;
