Eligibility to register

The NRSCH is designed to regulate providers of community housing, which includes social and affordable housing, indigenous community housing providers (ICHOs) and other specialist housing providers.

There is no obligation for housing providers to be registered under the national system, subject to any policy or funding preconditions imposed by individual States & Territories.

Registration is open to any provider that meets the requirements of the National Law including having:

  • an appropriate corporate structure for their proposed tier of registration.
  • mandatory arrangements in place to ensure in the event of wind-up and/or deregistration, that surplus assets remaining after the payment of liabilities continue to be available for social housing
  • a demonstrated capacity to meet and achieve ongoing compliance with the National Regulatory Code.
