Note: The following information is lifted from BCA, and is re-produced here for reference only. As this page may not be updated as frequently, you are highly encouraged to check with the authorities for the latest updates and information.
A consultation is required to be submitted, together with a copy of the land / building owner’s consent letter for the display of outdoor sign on the property and the following document via the online “Advertisement Licensing System (ALS)“. A formal licence application can be made when you have obtained the In-principle approval reply from BCA. Please note that an in-principle approval of the proposal is not equivalent to licence issued under the Building Control (Outdoor Advertising) Regulations. A formal licence is still required before displaying the signage.

- Visual of the proposed signage showing detailed artwork design and intended position of the signage licence number.
- Elevational plan of the building showing the position of the proposed signage.
- Sectional view showing the method of fixing and materials used for the signage.
- Layout plan showing the relative position of display to buildings, roads or other landmarks.
- Site plan showing the location of the lot on which the signage is to be erected / exhibited.
The drawings must be endorsed by the applicant and premises owner/managing agent and, where applicable, the Professional Engineer (PE).
- Clearances from URA (special requirements) and/or other government agencies, where applicable.
- Approval/Permit for the advertising structure, where applicable.
