New Requirement for CFMC/CFMC(GOLD)/CFMC(GOLDPLUS) Accredited Facilities Management (FM) Companies

SIFMA is the assessment body to validate the knowledge, skills and competencies required of an experienced Facilities Management Expert (FME), which was launched on 8 December 2021. Please refer to the SIFMA website https://www.sifma.org.sg/certified-facilities-management-expert-cfme where you will understand the details of how FM practitioners can attain each level of professional qualification, including the required competencies and experiences, the assessment framework, application process and renewal requirements.

We had also recently sent a circular to all companies accredited under the CFMC scheme regarding the new registration requirement to meet the minimum requirements under the Certified Facilities Management Expert scheme by 31 January 2023.

Accredited FMCs would be required to submit certificates of the CFME-accredited employees to maintain their CFMC grades by 31 January 2023. FMCs that do not meet the CFME requirements by 31 January 2023 would either have their CFMC status downgraded or have their CFMC status suspended.

With the launch of the CFME accreditation scheme, companies registered under CFMC are required to meet the minimum requirements as indicated below, by 31 January 2023

*Please note that, while the CFME scheme accepts applications from all nationalities, the CFMC criteria only recognize accredited CFMEs who are Singapore citizens or permanent residents
