Implementation of Nucleus Connect's Approved ICO
On 6 June 2013, Nucleus Connect Pte Ltd ("Nucleus Connect") has requested IDA’s approval to extend the implementation deadline under the Further Direction for the following three services under the Approved ICO to 1 September 2013:
- New Deactivation Process;
- New TP Installation Options; and
- Cancellation without charges,
(Collectively, the “Additional Services”).
Nucleus Connect explained that it requires the extension as the scope of works for the Additional Services is larger than expected and there is the need to develop and test these services together with the Relocation of Termination Points within Premises, Express Service and Reclassification service (collectively, the “Three Services”) due to interdependencies within its systems and processes. Nucleus Connect also informed IDA that it will be able to implement the Three Services by 1 September 2013 (ahead of the deadline of 31 October 2013).
Having assessed the matter, IDA agrees to accede to Nucleus Connect’s request. This means that Nucleus Connect is required to implement the Additional Services by no later than 1 September 2013. Similarly, IDA expects Nucleus Connect to implement the Three Services by no later than 1 September 2013.
