Stakeholder’s Dialogue on the Draft of New Singapore Standards on water-based primer & enamel paints for metal and wood surfaces

The drafts of the new Singapore Standard on “Specification for water-based primer for metal and wood” & ”Specification for water-based enamel paint” are currently out for public comment from 12 Nov 2021 to 13 Jan 2021. At present, both standards are targeted for completion in Q1 2022.

A dialogue session is being organised during this public comment period to gather technical feedback from industry members, and also provide them with an opportunity to seek clarifications on the drafted standard requirements.

Key industry stakeholders from these committees were engaged to support the development of both Singapore standards.
