The Regulatory Framework for Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) in Ireland incorporates our mission, vision, values and our strategic objectives.
This is an important document for AHBs as it sets out the framework that these organisations are subject to, and it outlines our risk-based approach to regulating the sector.
Our application of risk-based regulation ensures our regulatory approach is appropriate, measured and proportionate. It allows us to focus on important risks and to have different levels of engagement with individual AHBs depending on their risk profile.
The framework includes a number of important elements such as:
- Standards for AHBs
- Our monitoring programme
- Planned and reactive assessment
- Providing advice and guidance
- Managing concerns and notifiable events
- Relationships with other statutory and regulatory bodies.
