The Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) is a voluntary enterprise-wide certification for organisations to demonstrate accountable data protection practices. The DPTM will help businesses increase their competitive advantage and build trust with their customers and stakeholders.
Organisations that have put in place a data protection regime to comply with the obligations of the PDPA can apply for DPTM.
They should be either (1) formed or recognised under the laws of Singapore, or (2) resident, or having an office or a place of business, in Singapore, and in any case, not a public agency (as defined in the Personal Data Protection Act 2012).
Application fee of S$535 (inclusive of GST) is payable to IMDA.
Assessment fee, payable to the Assessment Body, ranges and depends on the size of the organisation (e.g. annual sales turnover, no. of sites, etc) and the Assessment Body you engaged. Please approach the Assessment Bodies listed in this website for a quotation to confirm the actual fee.
To encourage organisations to take up more than one certification (i.e. DPTM, CBPR and PRP), one application fee of S$535 (inclusive of GST) is payable to IMDA when organisations apply for multiple certifications in a single application process.
