From 1 April 2018, media companies are required to abide by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower’s Tripartite Standards in order to recieve any funds from the IMDA, including for APSB funded projects. These Tripartite Standards are a new tripartite initiative which helps organisations with good practices distinguish themselves. They complement Singapore’s laws, Tripartite Guidelines and Advisories to increase the adoption of fair and progressive workplaces practices in Singapore. More information about these standards can be found here. Becoming an AIPRO member requires companies to sign up for these Tripartite Standards.
