Guidelines for Enhancing Building Security in Singapore
Published in January 2010

Updated as at July 2010

The 'Guidelines for Enhancing Building Security in Singapore' (GEBSS) is a comprehensive reference guide on building security practices and is a follow-up from the earlier 'Enhancing Building Security' booklet. The GEBSS has been prepared by Homefront Security Division - MHA in consultation with SPF, ISD, SCDF, BCA, URA and with inputs from external consultants. It provides a set of guidelines that caters to the local context - such as taking into account the local threat scenarios, construction trends, building typology, and local urban planning considerations. The purpose of the GEBSS is to raise awareness, educate and provide useful information to building owners, developers, designers, contractors and other stakeholders working on enhancing the safety of our buildings.  The GEBSS is a ‘live’ document which will be updated when necessary.  Any comments or feedback would be appreciated.

Enhancing Building Security
Published in April 2005

This booklet is the work of the Building Protection Workgroup chaired by BCA and comprising reps from MHA, MND, BCA, FSSD, Ops Dept of SCDF, ISD, SPF, HDB and URA. It presents several relatively simple, practical and cost effective security measures and building design considerations that could help lessen the severity of a terrorist attack on a building. The measures listed are by no means comprehensive nor are they mandatory. But they help to serve as a useful introduction to building owners, developers, designers, contractors and other stakeholders working on enhancing the safety of our buildings.
