Bromine is not affected by Cyanuric Acid (CYA) directly in that bromine does not combine with CYA the way that chlorine does. Nevertheless, CYA still shields lower depths of water from the UV rays in sunlight and therefore can protect bromine somewhat from breakdown from sunlight, though not nearly as much as it protects chlorine (since part of the protection of chlorine is from CYA combining with chlorine).

So CYA does not reduce bromine's sanitizing nor oxidizing effectiveness, if that is what you were asking.
