Organisations who commit to voluntary regulation are required to complete a Charter of Commitments (the Charter) and subscribe to the principles of the Code. By completing the Charter, these organisations agree to undergo an annual assessment of their compliance with the Code.
A key principle of the assessment process is proportionality. Those organisations with a greater number of units, and/or development plans, must comply with more extensive regulatory requirements. Organisations are assigned to one of three different Tiers for this purpose.
