National Regulatory System - Phase 2
1 October 2013
In the COAG Select Council on Housing and Homelessness Communiqué 28 March 2013, housing ministers across Australia agreed to introduce the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (NRSCH) through a phased approach.
Phase 1 started on 1 July 2013, beginning a six- month period of national operational testing and evaluation. A small group of providers were selected to undertake the registration process to help fine-tune the system.
Phase 2 begins in January 2014 for all participating jurisdictions. Over the coming weeks providers will be notified in writing of their provisional Tier and Primary Jurisdiction allocation. The provisional allocation is based on information currently held by registrars about a provider’s community housing business. Please note this is only provisional. A provider can choose to apply for registration in any Tier.
The Primary Registrar will always, on the basis of the evidence submitted by the provider to support their registration application, make a decision about registration and the appropriate tier of registration.
More information is available in the Tier Guidelines on the NRSCH website. Alternatively you can contact your Primary Registrar for more information about your own provisional tier allocation.
