Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Participation in NRSCH

The ACT is a participant in the National Regulatory System for Community Housing (NRSCH).On May 2013, the ACT Legislative Assembly passed the CommunityHousing Providers National Law (ACT) Act to apply as a territory law, the National Law for the registration and regulation of community housing providers under a national system of registration.

The Community Housing Providers National Law replaces the previous ACT Regulatory System for Not–for–Profit housing providers.

All ACT registered community housing providers (CHPs) are required to apply to be transitioned to register under the NRSCH within an 18-month transition period that commenced on 1 January 2014.

Community Housing providers not previously registered may also apply.

Further information on registration and compliance can be found at the ACT Office of Registrar website.
