Regulatory Framework

Registered Providers invited to have their say
As part of our commitment to develop our regulatory role, we conducted a Stakeholder Feedback survey in 2013.


The new Regulatory Framework for social housing in England from 2012 implements the amendments to the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 introduced by the Localism Act 2011, and the Secretary of State’s directions on specific standards for the Regulator.

It sets out the parameters under which we will carry out our regulatory activity, and has been developed following extensive consultation with our key stakeholders.  This new Regulatory Framework replaces the one which came into effect on 1 April 2010.

Also available are:

The previous Accounts Direction is available from the National Archives.
