1-Day Inter-Agency Coordinating Committee (IACC) Sharing Session

Event code: 79097
Common Pitfalls When Applying for Temporary Occupation Permit/Certificate of Statutory Completion
Chaired by BCA, the inter-Agency Coordinating Committee (IACC), comprises representatives from various building regulatory agencis (EMA, LTA, NEA, NParks, PUB, SCDF, URA), public sector developers (HDB,JTC) and industry associations (ACES, IES, REDAS, SCAL , SIA). The IACC primarily facilitates project teams to quickly resolve issues arising from conflicting regulatory requirements that may impeded construction activities and reduce productivity.

This sharing session is to educate and update the construction industry stakeholders on the adoption of good practices and updates of changes in regulatory requirements.

Through this sharing, we hope to engage practitioners and new entrants into the industry to clarify and address technical requirements for TOP/CSC. The agencies will also touch on topics and observations such as common non-compliances detected during TOP applications and inspections, best practices, other associated tips or pitfalls, as well as learning points that would enable a smoother TOP/CSC process.
