The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland is calling for views on its mission and strategy for the next three years.
A discussion document published on the CCNI website asks for feedback on the regulator’s proposed approach, including its vision and strategic approach.
The document says the regulator’s overall vision is for "a dynamic and well-governed charities sector in which the public has confidence, underpinned by the CCNI’s effective delivery of its regulatory role".
It says the CCNI’s values will include being independent, accountable, proportionate, impartial and transparent.
The regulator, which started to register charities in 2013, says in the introduction to the document that its priorities will change once it starts receiving charities’ annual accounts from 2016/17.
It says "significant additional unplanned compliance work" has arisen from the registration process.
CCNI said in February that the process had been slower than expected because too many applications were substandard or incomplete.
The consultation, which consists of 31 questions, runs until 5pm on 7 September.
