Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) Assessor Training & Certification

Adding value with our service portfolio

WHAT IS the SMART INDUSTRY READINESS INDEX (SIRI) ASSESSOR programme about?

The SIRI Assessor Programme was established by the Singapore Government to formally recognize independent and neutral individuals who are able to professionally conduct an assessment of a manufacturing facility using SIRI and its accompanying frameworks and tools. The SIRI assessment includes the evaluation of a manufacturing facility across the 16 dimensions of assessment, the identification of recommended areas of priority, and the provision of a report of the findings.

Administered by TÜV SÜD PSB Pte Ltd (TÜV SÜD) on behalf of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the SIRI Assessor Certification Scheme aims to safeguard the integrity and consistency of the SIRI assessment conducted by ensuring the quality and proficiency of the SIRI Assessor. The SIRI Assessor Certification Scheme is aligned to the ISO 17024 and Technical Reference for management consultants (TR43). The scheme is pending to obtain the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) accreditation.
