NEA Cleaning Business Licence

What is NEA Cleaning Business Licence?

With effect from 1 April 2014, all general cleaning businesses in Singapore, even if these services form only part of their overall business, will have to be licensed before 1 September 2014.

Under NEA’s Cleaning Business Licence conditions, it is mandatory for cleaning staff (employed for 3 months or more as at the date of application) to attend WSQ cleaning courses under the Environmental Services Framework.

Enhanced Clean Mark Accreditation

The NEA Clean Mark Accreditation Scheme (previously known as Voluntary Accreditation Scheme) was launched on 21 July 2010. The scheme was jointly developed by NEA, MOM, WDA and NTUC’s e2i, in consultation with industry representatives and Unions. It recognises companies that deliver high standards of cleaning through the training of workers, use of equipment to improve work processes, and fair employment practices. Since its first launch, the scheme has been revised after taking into consideration industry's feedback. The Clean Mark Accreditation Scheme has been enhanced in October 2012 to raise the overall standards and professionalism of the cleaning industry through better employment practices and productivity initiatives, together with a new accreditation requirement on progressive wages. The enhanced scheme is termed as “The Enhanced Clean Mark Accreditation Scheme”.

NEA has streamlined the business processes of the Enhanced Clean Mark Accreditation Scheme (EAS) and the Cleaning Business Licence. From February 2015, cleaning businesses need to submit only one application for both the Cleaning Business Licence and EAS.
