From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The statutory boards of the Government of Singapore are autonomous organisations that have been tasked to perform an operational function by legal statutes passed as Acts in the Parliament of Singapore. The statutes define the purpose, rights and powers of each authority. These organisations would usually subsequently report to one specific ministry. This list includes both current and new statutory boards formed. [1]

Singapore is a country known for its highly efficient and centralised government system largely due to these statutory boards. [2] They play a significant role in the development and implementation of policies and programs in various sectors of the country. [1]

These boards are responsible for providing essential services and regulating key industries, with the goal of ensuring the welfare and well-being of Singaporeans. [3] The highly centralized and efficient system of statutory boards has contributed to Singapore's success as a modern and prosperous nation. [1]
