Tourist Guide Code of Conduct and Ethics
A Workgroup consisting of representatives from the Society of Tourist Guides (Singapore), Tour Guide Chapter and Singapore Tourism Board have developed a Code of Conducts and Ethics (CCE) for the Tourist Guide (TG) profession. This CCE is created by TGs for TGs and will help to project a positive image of TGs to both locals and tourists and show the TGs' commitment to maintain the standards of professional conduct that are being established. There will be no penalties attached to this CCE.

Attached please find a copy of the CCE for your reference.

Enforcement against Public Health Offences in Singapore
Dear Tourist Guide,

We would like to share a message from the National Environment Agency (NEA) which would be relevant when you are carrying out your duties.

NEA would like to seek your assistance to remind tourists that littering, spitting and urinating/defecating in public areas are offences under the Environmental Public Health Act (EPHA) and its regulations. Under the Smoking (Prohibited in Certain Places) Act (SPCPA), it is also an offence to smoke in prohibited places. Offenders, regardless of their nationalities, are liable for penalties.

Tourists to Singapore can play their part in helping to keep Singapore clean and to uphold the smoke-free environment in places where smoking is prohibited.

To ensure that your guests enjoy a positive experience in Singapore, do take the time to share this information with them. Should you require further assistance or information, please contact NEA at 1800-2255632 or [email protected]

Thank you.
