This Circular is to provide clarity to Training Providers on the revised Advisory Guidelines on the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) for NRIC and other National Identification Numbers issued by the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC), which takes effect from 1 Sep 2019.

2. Public agencies in Singapore and organizations acting on their behalf are exempted from the Data Protection Provisions of the PDPA.

3. NRIC is a necessary data field which SSG collects for proper governance of training grant disbursement.

4. Trainees applying for SkillsFuture Funding are to provide their physical NRICs for the purpose of identification and collection of NRIC number and other personal details required to maintain accurate, complete and up-to-date records. However, SSG does not require Training Providers to keep photocopies (or scanned copies) of trainees’ NRIC, or to retain trainees’ physical NRIC.

Further Clarification on TRAQOM initiative from MySkillsFuture Website

Is it mandatory for a training provider to participate in the TRAQOM initiative?

It is mandatory for Training Providers offering SSG-funded courses that are available for public sign-ups to participate in the TRAQOM initiative. Training providers are required to provide the trainee’s name, NRIC, personal email address and mobile number, as part of their participation requirements. This will enable SSG or its appointed vendor to send surveys to the trainees.

SSG will be incorporating TRAQOM requirements as part of SSG’s funding terms and conditions.

Therefore, to register for any training courses at Intellisoft Systems, you will need to provide the NRIC and other relevant information in full.
