December 11, 2016

Singapore authority IDA has changed their name to IMDA (Info-communications Media Development Authority) and the labeling requirements have been updated to reflect the change accordingly. The transactional arrangement highlights are:

  • All dealer’s licenses and equipment registrations previously issued by IDA before October 1st 2016 will remain in force and will be deemed to be issued by IMDA. All conditions in the respective dealer’s license and equipment registration will remain the same (under Section 91(1) of the Info-communications Media Development Authority Act 2016 in force on Oct 1st, 2016).
  • Equipment registered or renewed before Oct 1, 2016 can remain the same IDA labeling on the existing stock if the labels are affixed before this date.
  • For the devices registered or renewed after Oct 1, 2016 shall bear the IMDA compliance label no later than September 30, 2017.
