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


The National Regulatory System for Community Housing seeks a clear separation between regulatory activities, and state and territory policy and funding activities.

The scope of a Registrar’s functions under the National Regulatory System is limited to regulatory activities.

Policy and funding decisions are the responsibility of state, territory and federal governments. This enables localised responses to housing need


The key objectives of the NRSCH are to:

  • provide a consistent regulatory environment to support the growth and development of the community housing 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.
