The purpose of the Code of Practice for Info-communication Facilities in Buildings (COPIF) is to ensure that developers and/or owners of buildings and developments provide adequate space and facilities for the deployment and operation of installation and plant; these are equipment used for providing info-communication services to the buildings. The COPIF also specifies the duties to be observed by developers, building/development owners and telecommunication licensees in relation to the provision, maintenance and utilisation of the relevant space and facilities provided, as directed under COPIF. Since its inception on 1 April 2000, the COPIF has been reviewed and revised when appropriate, to ensure its continued relevance in light of the evolving requirements for info-communication facilities. The latest COPIF 2013 and COPIF Guidelines came into effect on 1 May 2013.
Since COPIF 2013 took effect on 1 May 2013, there have been several instances where industry players have sought clarifications from IDA on the COPIF provisions. In order to address the common queries from the industry, IDA has decided to issue a set of clarifications to COPIF 2013 on 13 January 2014.
