National Regulatory System
Development of a National Regulatory System for Community Housing
At the COAG Select Council on Housing and Homelessness on 28 March 2013, Ministers announced that the National Regulatory System for Community Housing will start for participating jurisdictions on 1 July 2013 through a phased implementation. This will include six months of testing and evaluation of the registration processes and procedures to operate the system (Phase 1), and registration under the National Law to occur over an 18 month transition period from 1 January 2014 (Phase 2).
COAG or the Council of Australian Governments is the peak intergovernmental forum in Australia. At the COAG Select Council on Housing and Homelessness meeting in March, Ministers also endorsed for public release the National Regulatory System for Community Housing Charter, which sets out the vision, objectives, regulatory principles, regulatory philosophy and practice as well as the features of the National Regulatory System. The Charter is one of a suite of documents designed to support implementation of, and transition to, the new system.
