Code of Governance For Co-operatives

The Code of Governance for Co-operatives (“Code”) was launched by the Singapore National Co-operative Federation on 11 Nov 2006 at the Annual Co-operative Leaders’ Conference.  The Code encapsulates the best governance practices of the industry and aims to help co-op boards and management better fulfill their roles.  The Code is meant to assist all co-ops (including non-affiliates of SNCF) to examine and raise their governance standards.

Code components and tiers

The Code of Governance for co-operatives was formulated by a co-operative review team comprising representatives from the Ministry of Community Development, Youth & Sports, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Ministry of Finance, the National Trades Union Congress and the SNCF.  It consists of principles and guidelines for each of the following broad components:

  • Board Matters
  • Conflict of Interest Policy
  • Human Resource Policy
  • Accountability & Audit
  • Capital, Assets & Funds
  • Corporate Communications: Communications with members and stakeholders

The Code will be tiered according to credit and non-credit co-operatives. Credit Co-ops which are of greater regulatory risk (in view of their deposit-taking activities) will be subjected to more stringent requirements regardless of their annual turnover.
