Registration

Community housing providers are registered under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing in one of three tiers of registration.

Registrars determine a provider’s tier of registration by assessing the level of risk, by reference to the scale and scope of the provider’s community housing activities.

The tier of registration in turn determines the performance requirements and the intensity of regulatory engagement applicable to each provider as follows:

  • Tier 1: the highest level of performance requirements and regulatory engagement, reflecting that these providers are involved in activities that necessitate management of a higher level of risk.
  • Tier 2: an intermediate level of performance requirements and regulatory engagement – reflecting that these providers are involved in activities that necessitate management of a level of risk lower than Tier 1 but greater than Tier 3.
  • Tier 3: a lower level of performance requirements and engagement – reflecting that these providers are involved in activities that necessitate management of a lower level of risk.
