Good environmental hygiene is required to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. This is especially important in our current climate where COVID-19 is disrupting our daily lives.
With effect from 30 July 2021, the National Environment Agency (NEA) has implemented the Environmental Sanitation (ES) regime progressively, starting with higher-risk premises with immuno-vulnerable occupants and/or high footfall such as preschools, schools, youth facilities and eldercare facilities, followed by food centres and/or markets (FCMs) and coffeeshops.
To prepare for the implementation of the ES regime, all specified premises managers will have to identify an Environmental Control Coordinator (ECC) to undergo training and registered with the NEA (if they meet the ECXC certificate of registration requirements).
