Media Advisory: Enhanced Cleaning Business Licensing Framework
21 Dec, Thu

This is to provide an update that the ENHANCED CLEANING BUSINESS LICENSING FRAMEWORK will take effect on 1 January 2024. Please see attached PDF for more details.


From 1 January 2024, cleaning businesses will be differentiated into three classes of licences with a 2-year licence validity1. The enhancement comes amid rising demands for quality cleaning services, and growing manpower challenges in the cleaning sector. The changes will uplift public health standards in Singapore, as cleaning businesses deepen competencies, adopt productivity solutions, and create better employment opportunities.


The enhanced cleaning business licensing framework was introduced as part of the Environmental Public Health (Amendment) Bill in parliament on 9 January 2023 and passed on 6 February 20232.
