Registration

To participate in CORE, please first contact and register with the Social Housing Regulator, who need be aware of your organisation and will supply you with a registration number and additional information.

Data Submission

If your organisation has done this but is new to CORE, please complete this CORE new institution form and return it to the CORE Helpdesk. We can then update your organisation's details on the CORE system and begin creating Data Protection and individual user accounts for you to start supplying data, which can be submitted either through our online log forms or you can upload large data files of several hundred logs maximum.

If you have previously provided CORE data, you should self register using your email address and select the password 'Reset' link on the 'Log In' page.

Data can be submitted either through our online questionnaire (or log form) or via a large data upload (of several hundred logs maximum). The data entry system will check your information as it is loaded and let you know if there are any issues. We ask that you please resolve any queries as soon as possible as this will allow for good quality, up-to-date information to be available for analysis.

If you require any further information regarding CORE that is not available on this website, please contact the CORE Helpdesk.

CORE Software Support

There are a number of commercial housing management software packages available that incorporate the facility to enter/export CORE data. These packages use the e-CORE specifications, provided by MHCLG, to format data to be exported as text files. The resulting files may then be uploaded directly on to the online data submission system for CORE, which will allow for further editing and dynamic validation.

This link provides details of a number of software suppliers and their software, including a brief description of the product, contact details and their current compliance status with the e-CORE specifications (if applicable).

For more information on the current e-CORE specifications, please email the CORE Helpdesk.
