The Regulatory Board for Wales (RBW) – Report to the Minister for Housing and Local Government
The Regulatory Board for Wales (RBW) is an independent Advisory Board to the Minister for Housing and Local Government at the Welsh Government.
Their annual report to the Minister is one way they give assurance on how the regulation of Housing Associations in Wales is working and insight on issues emerging from the HA sector.

Did you know?
The RBW itself is supported by a Regulation Advisory Group (RAG). The RAG is a stakeholder forum that provides an opportunity to raise, share and learn from issues relating to regulation, and to advise the RBW accordingly. It is an important mechanism to help promote an inclusive approach, based on the founding principle of co regulation and a forum welcomed by the RBW.
The RBW receives regular reports from Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS) Cymru on understanding and hearing the views of tenants of Housing Associations, ensuring tenants’ concerns and interests are reflected in RBW discussions. This is an important source of information for the RBW and will be further strengthened by the implementation of the current thematic review of tenant engagement. Membership of both the RBW and the RAG are shown for information at Appendix 1 to this annual report.
