Guidelines to Enhancing Building Security in Singapore
Updated as at February 2018
The revised ‘Guidelines for Enhancing Building Security in Singapore’ (GEBSS) is a comprehensive reference guide on building security practices and has been updated with new content on how to conduct risk assessments. The GEBSS has been prepared by MHA in consultation with ISD, ISSS, SCDF, SPF, BCA, URA, and with inputs from external consultants. It provides a set of guidelines that caters to the local context - such as taking into account the local threat scenarios, construction trends, building typology, and local urban planning considerations. The purpose of the GEBSS is to raise awareness, educate and provide useful information to building owners, developers, designers, contractors and other stakeholders working on enhancing the security of our buildings. The GEBSS is a ‘live’ document which will be updated when necessary. Any comments or feedback would be appreciated. Please write to: MHA_Guidelines_BuildingSecurity@mha.gov.sg.
