About the Data Standards

The Building Safety Bill, which was recently taken to UK Parliament, has added to recommendations put forward in the both the Social Housing White Paper and Hackitt Review around Tenant Satisfaction Measures, compliance, accountability, and transparency in particular. This policy context reflects the importance increasingly placed on health and safety and the customer voice across the UK housing sector. 

The UK Housing Data Standards aim to support the housing sector to improve its data and overcome current challenges by increasing data governance, improving performance and streamlining regulatory reporting in social housing. Individually, housing providers can use the Standard to inform transformation programmes including in designing new processes and creating interfaces between systems, contractors, and customers

The UK Housing Data Standard library is made up of the following components:

  • Quick start guide
  • Reference data model
  • Data exchange standards
  • Implementation business case
