The PDPA for collection of individual’s NRIC is effective from 1 Sep 2019. 

This is to inform that PCP Programme Managers (PMs) appointed by WSG are exempted.

4As, one of the appointed PMs may continue to collect, use or disclose NRIC data in the course of acting on behalf of public agency like WSG.

As the issuing authority for the NRIC, the Government rightfully uses NRIC numbers to discharge its functions and services with citizens. An organisation that is required to collect, use or disclose NRIC numbers for a public agency's purposes is not required to assess whether the purposes are in accordance with the PDPC's NRIC Advisory Guidelines.

Nonetheless, in such scenarios, organisations should inform the individuals that the collection, use or disclosure of their NRIC numbers is for purposes required by the public agency. Organisations are also reminded to ensure an appropriate level of security to protect the NRIC numbers collected. Organisations must also cease to retain the NRIC numbers once they have completed the tasks required by the public agency since the organisations have no need to retain the information.

Organisations should note that the treatment for NRIC numbers also applies to Birth Certificate numbers, Foreign Identification Numbers (FIN), Work Permit numbers and Passport numbers.
