START

In 2003 the National Department of Human Settlements (NDHS) and the DRDLR started engaging with a particular focus on developing a dispute resolution mechanism focusing on community schemes. It was natural that the NDHS, as a department having human settlements mandates, would have to develop relevant legislation and establish a dedicated entity to plan and implement an effective dispute resolution mechanism.

CSOS BILL

In 2009/2010 the NDHS developed a detailed business case document which paved the way for the development of the CSOS Bill, which became an act on the 11th of June 2011. Promulgation of the Community Schemes Ombud Service Act meant that the NDHS had the necessary mandate to establish the CSOS.
