Certifying Authority for Evidence Act

The primary source of the law of evidence in Singapore is the Evidence Act (Cap 97) ('the Act'). The Evidence Act, which provides the framework of rules for the types of evidence that can be admitted as evidence during court proceedings, defines “electronic records” as a record generated, communicated, received or stored by electronic, magnetic, optical or other means in an information system or transmitted from one information system to another.

PwC has been reappointed by the Ministry of Law as a Certifying Authority under Section 116A of the Evidence Act. The re-appointment takes effect from 15 April 2013 for a period of 3 years. PwC has been a Certifying Authority since 1996.
