Name : Workshop on Statutory Requirements of Security Plans for Critical Infrastructure
Date : Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Duration : 2.30pm to 5.30pm (Registration starts at 2.00pm)
The Workshop on the Statutory Requirements of Security Plans For Critical Infrastructure will address legal requirements of a security risk assessment plan that is in line with the Infrastructure Protection Act 2017 ("IPA").
The IPA was passed by the Parliament of Singapore on 2 October 2017. The Act creates a new regulatory framework for the incorporation of a security plan in designated buildings and developments. The IPA is promulgated to replace and repeal Protected Areas and Protected Places Act (Cap 256 of the 2013 Revised Edition). In this regard, IPA is the key legal framework that governs the provision of security services for critical infrastructure and protected areas and places.
