This revised Regulatory Framework seeks to improve and strengthen our approach to regulation.

The new framework has been developed in partnership with key stakeholders, including the Registered Social Landlord (RSL) sector, its tenants and funders. It is an evolution of the risk based approach to regulation set out in the 2011 Regulatory Framework. In response to a changing and more challenging environment, it aims to ensure that Wales continues to have well governed, financially robust RSLs providing high quality and improving landlord services to tenants and service users.

The Regulatory Framework (2017) withdraws and replaces the Regulatory Framework for Housing Associations Registered in Wales (December 2011) with effect from 1st June 2017.

Following the recent review of the Regulatory Framework, the performance standards have been revised for clarification purposes, with effect from 12 October 2018.
