Standards Council & Standards Development Organisations

Singapore Standardisation Structure

Singapore Standards Council

SPRING works with more than 1,000 standards partners and some 100 partner organisations through the industry-led Singapore Standards Council and Standards Development Organisations to develop and promote standards in Singapore. The Singapore Standards Council has also set up relevant Standards Committees (SC) to oversee the development, review and promotion of standards in various industries and functional areas. These 12 Standards Committees also set up various Technical Committees and Working Groups (e.g., industry members, professional bodies, associations, academia and government agencies) to develop standards.

The Singapore Standards Council

Standards Council

The Singapore Standards Council comprises representatives from the private and public sectors so as to strengthen public-private collaboration and encourage stakeholders with diverse interests to participate in standards development. The Standards Council also advises SPRING Singapore on the directions, policies, strategies and priorities for the national standardisation programme. Singapore Standards and Technical References are developed based on market relevance and consensus and are promoted for wide acceptance and adoption by industry and key stakeholders.
