The proposed National Regulatory System seeks to overcome the barriers, gaps and inconsistencies that have arisen through each State and Territory regulating community housing providers in a different way. It will replace existing State and Territory systems where they exist.
The objectives of the proposed National Regulatory System are to:
- Provide a consistent regulatory environment to support the growth and development of the sector
- Pave the way for future housing product development
- Reduce the regulatory burden on housing providers working across jurisdictions
- Provide a level playing field for providers seeking to enter new jurisdictions.
The evidence guidelines, tiers guidelines and enforcement guidelines for the new system are currently being developed with feedback from providers.
