Factories Registration & Notification

What are Factories Registration & Notification?

Factory owners are required to either notify or register their premises with MOM before operations begin to facilitate the management of workplace risk and the implementation of Safety and Health Management Systems in factories.

What is the difference between Factory Registration and Factory Notification?

Factories with lower risk activities require only a Factory Notification to MOM before commencing operations.

Factories with higher-risk activities are required to register with MOM before beginning operations (Group A), subject to renewals if they fall under Group B.
