Regulation Team

The Regulation Office has been given the responsibility for the regulation of Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) on an interim basis.

Regulation at present, is based on a voluntary commitment by the AHB but there is a commitment to have statutory regulation in place for 2016.

The Regulation Office, operates within the Housing Agency and reports to the interim Regulatory Committee. The Office is responsible for the day to day management of the regulation function. 

The work of the Regulation Office is focused on:

  • implementing the Voluntary Regulatory Code (the Code)
  • assessing AHBs in respect of commitments within the Code, which includes financial indicators, governance and management arrangements.
  • providing assistance and guidance to AHBs in meeting their regulatory requirements where necessary,
  • developing the Code further, and
  • advising on the development of statutory regulation.
