Telecom riser ducts are reserved for exclusive use by Public Telecommunication Licensees (PTLs) and Telecommunication Service Licensees (TSLs) referred to as FBOs, who provide fixed services to buildings. Any other party who use the riser ducts shall seek permission from IMDA.

This set of guidelines is applicable to a building owner/developer (which may include a managing agent or a Management Corporation Strata Title holder) or a tenant who intends to lay cables in a multi-storey and/or multi-tenanted commercial or residential building.

IMDA generally has no objection to the height or land use proposal. For land use proposals, please note that developers or owners need to ensure these requirements.
