Construction companies no longer need to register worksites with MOM

share on

With immediate effect, construction companies no longer need to register their worksite with the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).

In a statement yesterday, MOM noted that construction companies will only need to apply for a permit from the Building and Construction Authority (BCA); rather than make two separate applications to BCA and MOM.

As part of the Government's efforts to streamline business processes, information required by MOM for construction worksite registration will be integrated into BCA’s permit application.

With this change, construction companies can expect to save around S$1.7 million annually in worksite registration fees. It will also enhance coordination between agencies as MOM and BCA will be using a common database of construction sites for inspections and other operations.
