Considerations for Collecting NRIC Numbers for Organisations Now Available

13 Nov 2018

From 1 September 2019, organisations are not allowed to collect NRIC or other national identification numbers unless required by law or necessary for verification of an individual's identity to high fidelity.

Organisations that require some help deciding if they should collect or what alternatives to consider can refer to the PDPC's leaflet on Considerations for Collecting NRIC Numbers for Organisations. Access the leaflet here or from our Resources section for organisations.
