Westside Strata is a member of the Strata Community Australia (SCA) NSW. The peak body for the strata sector in New South Wales representing over 3,000 strata managers, principals and suppliers in the sector.

Over the past four years, Strata Community Association (NSW) and the NSW Government have been working in partnership to strengthen consumer protection and restore consumer confidence.

The NSW Government has approved a Professional Standards Scheme. This formal recognition by the NSW Government is the first of its kind for the property services industry in Australia and marks the beginning of an exciting time for members of SCA (NSW).

The scheme has been approved for an initial period of 5 years commencing from 1st July 2021. This approval means strata manager members of SCA (NSW) must adhere to a Code of Ethics including professional standards and is monitored by Professional Standards Australia.

At the forefront of this scheme is a further commitment to consumers to ensure high professional standards across the strata industry in NSW. This is in line with various other initiatives across NSW, including the NSW Government plan to rebuild the construction sector and restore confidence and professionalism.

The Professional Standards Scheme offers our members’ clients a range of benefits, including:
The SCA (NSW) will oversee and self-regulate the conduct of all members within a structured professional framework defined by our Code of Ethics;

  • In addition to our internal complaints handling process, the Professional Standards Scheme brings a further robust and independent complaints handling process, ensuring clients can be assured of an independent review and response; and
