As part of its continuing efforts to stay focused and relevant to the industry, SBACC has reviewed its operations and structure. With effect from 1 June 2016, the management and administration of the PMC Scheme will be fully licensed to Singapore PMC Certification Pte Ltd (SPMCC Pte Ltd), a newly set up entity that is a fully owned, independent subsidiary of the Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF) and which concentrates on the certification of practicing management consultants. SBACC assures all practicing management consultants of the same level of professional support from the same certification team that you are familiar with.
