MAS Issues “Regulatory Sandbox” Guidelines for FinTech Experiments

Singapore, 16 November 2016... The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) today published its “regulatory sandbox” guidelines to encourage and enable experimentation of solutions that utilise technology innovatively to deliver financial products or services. The guidelines incorporate feedback from the public consultation as well as learning points from actual sandbox applications.


2 The guidelines will improve the clarity, flexibility and transparency of the regulatory sandbox in the following ways:
a. Improved clarity - The guidelines includes examples and elaborations to illustrate MAS’ expectations on the sandbox such as the evaluation criteria for entry into the sandbox;

b. Greater flexibility - The guidelines have been refined to allow greater flexibility, including through relaxation of a number of evaluation criteria for firms looking to enter a sandbox, and allowing room for adjustments during experimentation as firms learn from market responses;


c. Increased transparency - MAS will work closely with sandbox applicants in the

evaluation and experimentation process. Relevant information of approved sandbox

applications will also be published on the MAS website.


3 Ms Jacqueline Loh, Deputy Managing Director of MAS, said, “Emerging financial

products or services that utilise FinTech are becoming more sophisticated. The guidelines

reflect MAS’ commitment to building a smart financial centre where innovation is pervasive

and technology is used widely. The regulatory sandbox provides a conducive environment

where regulatory requirements will be relaxed to enable firms to experiment with promising

innovations within boundaries.”
