Reporting standards

The reporting standards set out the requirements on pension providers and dashboard providers for generating, recording, and reporting data. These include:

  • business audit requirements – information required for non-repudiation purposes and/or to support forensic investigation if things go wrong
  • protective monitoring – for security protection and detection of threats
  • operational monitoring – to measure pension provider interface performance
  • management information – data to track how service performance and how the dashboards service is used
  • regulatory oversight reporting – data that will support regulators to monitor pension providers’ and dashboards providers’ compliance with legal obligations

Draft version November 2022

All PDP standards are published as ‘draft’ until approved by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. Find out more about PDP’s approach to standards governance.

PDP recommends schemes and providers align with the current version whilst preparing for connection. This version was developed following industry consultation and review by PDP volunteer participants.

PDP may make further changes before seeking formal approval. Only necessary changes will be considered and we will work with industry to understand potential impacts.

Refer to the changelog for updates since the last publication.
