No Need to Register Construction Worksites with MOM from 1 April 2019

  1. Currently, construction companies need to make separate applications to the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) for a permit to carry out structural works, and to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to register their construction worksite, before the companies are able to start work.
  2. From 1 April 2019, construction companies will only need to apply for BCA’s permit, rather than make two separate applications. There will be no need for construction companies to register their worksites with MOM. Information required by MOM for construction worksite registration will be integrated into BCA’s permit application.  This is part of the Government’s efforts to streamline business processes.
  3. Construction companies will save around S$1.7 million annually in worksite registration fees as there is no need to make separate payment for worksite registration. The change will enhance coordination between agencies as MOM and BCA will be using a common database of construction sites for inspections and other operations.
  4. For enquiries on permit application or worksite registration, companies can contact BCA at 1800-3425-222 or MOM at 6438 5122 respectively. Companies can also refer to about the revised procedure in worksite registration.
