The Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF), as set out under the Private Education Act and the Private Education Regulations, spells out the mandatory registration requirements and legislative obligations, which all PEIs operating in and from Singapore, must meet.
It is administered by the CPE, which is the sector regulator overseeing the private education sector, as established under the Private Education Act.
The ERF aims to enhance the overall quality of PEIs in Singapore and ensure that they are of a certain acceptable standard in order to protect the interests of students.
