NRSCH Statement


Australia’s new National Regulatory System for Community Housing aims to ensure a well governed, well managed and viable national community housing sector that meets the housing needs of tenants and provides assurance for government and investors.

Starting date

Full implementation of the system began on 1 January 2014, following six months of testing and evaluation with a small number of providers nationally.

The system is being introduced in participating jurisdictions according to their own timetables over an 18-month period.

Call for registrations

All interested housing providers seeking to be part of this national system can apply for registration via the Registrar in their state or territory. Specialist housing providers, including indigenous providers, are encouraged to apply.
