Public Consultation on Proposed Amendments to the Telecommunications Act and Media Development Authority of Singapore Act
The Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) is conducting an online public consultation exercise on proposed amendments to the Telecommunications Act (Cap. 323) (TA) and the Media Development Authority of Singapore Act (Cap. 172).
The objectives of the proposed changes are to: (1) enhance the process of deploying telecommunications systems; (2) introduce a new Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) regime for disputes between customers and telecommunications companies; (3) strengthen the Infocomm Development Authority's (IDA) oversight of the telecommunications industry; and (4) provide greater clarity to specific provisions in the TA.
