Certification Process For
BEFORE TEMPORARY OCCUPATION PERMIT
Building developers or building owners must obtain the Fibre Readiness Certification from NetLink Trust before applying for the Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) from the relevant authority.
The requirement for Fibre Readiness Certification is applicable to all new residential developments, with the exception of single landed dwelling-house unit.
HIGH-RISE RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS WITH MAIN DISTRIBUTION FRAME (MDF) ROOMS
The application for a Fibre Readiness Certification must be done at least five months before obtaining the TOP of the development on a per-block basis. In cases where each individual block of HDB, condominium or high-rise apartment within the same development has different TOP dates, the building developer has to apply for the Fibre Readiness Certification individually.
LANDED RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS WITHOUT MAIN DISTRIBUTION FRAME (MDF) ROOMS
Under the latest COPIF 2018, Fibre Readiness Certification is optional for new single landed dwelling-house but if the existing property has undergone additional & alteration (A&A) work that affects existing telecommunication facilities, either the building developer or homeowner must inform the Telecommunication Facility Co-ordination Committee (TFCC) at least three months before obtaining TOP via https://www.corenet2-ess.gov.sg.
