As a regulator, we seek a vibrant business environment where businesses thrive and consumer interests are protected. A balanced, sustainable infocomm and media sector can bring long-term benefits to both businesses and consumers; providing them with access to more innovative services and media choices.

IMDA monitors local and global market trends, developments and regulatory measures, while remaining technology-neutral, to ensure that current policies and regulatory frameworks are effective and relevant.

The rules must be clear, our regulations have to be proportionate and competition has to be sustainable. This way, consumers get greater choice, while businesses can confidently invest in innovative products, services and content.

Recognising the dynamic nature of the sectors, we conduct regular reviews to keep pace with technology change and evolving social norms and values. Industry and consumer feedback are vital in helping us formulate and review policy.

As a trusted steward of public values, we also have a classification standard to help consumers make informed media choices. This brings wider access to content, while reflecting community standards and values.
