BCSP and SISO Sign MOU with MOM's Blessing

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Singapore Institute of Safety Officers stating that those who hold a Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®) credential can achieve ordinary member status from SISO by becoming a Ministry of Manpower (MOM) Workplace Safety & Health Officer (one of the qualifications to practice safety in Singapore). CSPs must still meet qualifications and pass the associated examination.

In 1995, BCSP established a policy to recognize the process operated by SISO. This latest MOU, which was signed in Singapore, updates the agreement between the two organizations. Those who hold SISO's Ordinary Member status may waive BCSP's Safety Fundamentals examination but must meet all other requirements and take the Comprehensive Practice examination, in pursuit of the CSP certification.

"The signing of this agreement with SISO reflects a shared commitment for global recognition of professional certification. Our success in bridging geographical and cultural barriers helps to ensure standards of excellence for ES&H professionals working within the international community," said BCSP President Jeffrey L. Robinson, CSP, P.E.. "I also want to extend my sincere gratitude to the Singapore MOM for their invaluable support in this effort."
