About the Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM)

The Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) certified logo for organisations that demonstrate accountable data protection practices

The Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) is a voluntary enterprise-wide certification for organisations to demonstrate accountable data protection practices. The DPTM will help businesses increase their competitive advantage and build trust with their customers and stakeholders.

The directory of DPTM-certified organisations can be found here (2.05MB)

What DPTM means to consumers

As a consumer, you can rest assured that an organisation certified with the DPTM has put in place responsible data protection practices and will take better care of your personal data and minimise the risk of a data breach. Learn more about DPTM for consumers here.

Who can apply?

Organisations that have put in place a data protection regime to comply with the obligations of the PDPA can apply for DPTM.

They should be either (1) formed or recognised under the laws of Singapore, or (2) resident, or having an office or a place of business, in Singapore, and in any case, not a public agency (as defined in the Personal Data Protection Act 2012).

Organisations should assess its readiness using the DPTM Certification Checklist (275.80KB) before applying.

Organisations with ISO/IEC 27001 and 27701 may find it easier to attain DPTM certification as they have demonstrated good information security and privacy information management standards.

Upon submission of the application, the Applicant Organisation is bound by the Terms of Agreement (571.68KB) of the DPTM scheme.

Certification costs

Application fee:

Application fee* of S$545 (inclusive of GST) is payable to IMDA.

Assessment fee:

Assessment fee, payable to the Assessment Body, ranges and depends on the size of the organisation (e.g. annual sales turnover, no. of sites, etc) and the Assessment Body you engaged. Please approach the Assessment Bodies listed in this website for a quotation to confirm the actual fee.

  3. Charges that are higher than the benchmarks may not be unreasonable, particularly where a case is complex and requires significantly more time or effort to complete. Kindly approach the assessment bodies to ask for quotations for comparison.

List of DPTM consultancy service providers

Organisations may approach any of the following consultancy service providers to prepare them for the DPTM certification.
