Singapore IMDA Approval

The Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore aims to identify and facilitate the adoption of information and communication technologies (ICT) to drive economic growth in Singapore. Singapore IMDA certification: As a statutory board in the Singapore government, it seeks to deepen regulatory capabilities for a converged Information communication media sector, safeguarding the interests of consumers and fostering pro-enterprise regulations.

With more pervasive use of data, IMDA will also continue to promote and regulate data protection in Singapore through the Personal Data Protection Commission, which will be part of the IMDA. This will ensure that public confidence in the private sector’s use of personal data is safeguarded.
