Strengthening SMMs at wholesale markets (JFP, SFP, PPWC)

Strengthening SMMs at fishery ports

 With effect from 31 July 2021, SMMs have been enhanced at both Jurong Fishery Port (JFP) and Senoko Fishery Port (SFP). Only authorised entry pass holders (e.g. tenants, workers and trade visitors) will be allowed to enter the fishery ports. Read more here.

Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) Regime

JFP tenants and workers

As part of the enhanced SMMs, JFP tenants and workers will be placed on an RRT regime. All tenants and workers must undergo PCR testing at the designated testing centre every 7 days. The RRT regime will be rolled out in batches from 9 August 2021 and tenants and workers will be alerted via SMS. Tenants and workers are advised to keep to the RRT schedule assigned to them.

Trade visitors to JFP

From 5 August 2021, SFA will rely on trade visitors’ clearance of an RRT regime (e.g. Fast & Easy Testing regime for market stallholders or F&B operators) to allow them entry into JFP. Trade visitors are required to show proof of their last valid negative swab test result (within 14 days) at the entrance. For those not on an RRT regime or do not have a valid negative test result, on-arrival testing is available at JFP.

We urge fish merchants, buyers and related trade personnel to cooperate and adhere to the SMMs.

Strengthening SMMs at PPWC

To reduce crowding and facilitate safe distancing, entry to PPWC is currently restricted to trade visitors only. All trade visitors are required to show proof of a valid negative COVID-19 swab test result dated within 14 days of entry to PPWC. On-Arrival Testing (OAT) is available for those who do not have a valid negative test result.

Frequent visitors to PPWC can also enrol on a 14-day RRT regime for quicker entry. Those who have tested negative in the last 14 days will not be subjected to the OAT. Personnel authorised to enter PPWC who do not undergo testing or do not have negative test results will not be allowed to enter PPWC.

Wholesale centre users play an important role

Joint responsibility of all who work and trade at our wholesale centres is critical in keeping everyone safe. We thank all stakeholders for working with us to implement SMMs since the pandemic, as well as during this period to identify areas for tightened SMMs. The review is an ongoing process, and SFA will be working with the trade associations to refine the enhanced measures.
