Programme Introduction

The Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) and the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) are pleased to organise a Briefing on Personal Data Protection Act & Guidelines for Singapore NRIC and Other National Identification Numbers on Tue, 16 Oct 2018.

The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) was passed in Parliament in 2012 to safeguard individuals’ personal data against misuse. It is also to enhance Singapore’s competitiveness and position as a trusted business hub.

From 1 Sep 2019, organisations will be prohibited from collecting, using or disclosing Singapore NRIC and other national identification numbers as well as the retention of physical NRICs except in special circumstances. The new changes to the PDPA are to decrease the risk of unintended disclosure and identification numbers being used for illegal activities such as identity theft or fraud.

At this briefing, the Info-Communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) will recap on PDPA and the guidelines for NRIC and other national identification numbers.

There will also be a Q&A session for employers to seek clarifications on the Act and operational issues that may impact HR and their businesses.

All employers are urged to attend this important briefing.
