Efficient delivery of public service, building capabilities, increasing public confidence - these are some of the motivation for the participants who came to the Regulator Workshop organised by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC). The event presents an opportunity for 38 representatives from 12 ministries and agencies to learn about how accreditation can support public policy, hear the experience of their peers and explore new means to work together more effectively through the whole-of-government approach.

Lung. He also touched on the importance of monitoring and improvements to ensure effective implementation.
Mr Md Elfian Harun, Assistant Director, Bunker Services, MPA shared on MPA’s collaborative journey with various agencies including SAC to ensure transparent and efficient bunkering management to maintain Singapore’s position as a trusted bunkering hub.
