National Regulatory Sandbox

Building a Friendly Regulatory Environment

We’re living in a fast paced industry where we are constantly presented with new innovations every day. The biggest problem faced by the industry is on regulatory. Inflexible rules could kill innovative ideas. In the past, some really good ideas faced some challenges when being introduced, such as e-hailing providers; Grab and health care startups; TeleMe due to various strict regulations in the past.

This is why Futurise is leading the National Regulatory Sandbox programme to allow creators and innovators to focus their resources on fine-tuning their product, finding market fit or validating business models instead of tedious compliance efforts.

What's a Regulatory Sandbox?

A Regulatory Sandbox is a ‘safe place’ where pre-determined set of rules allow innovators to test their products, services, business models and delivery mechanisms in a live environment with relaxations on all or specific regulatory requirements. Regulatory Sandboxes benefit both innovators and regulators.
