We have successfully wrapped up and concluded our participation at the inaugural virtual Roundtable conducted by the Regulatory in Compliance Sub-Committee of the Blockchain Association of Singapore (BAS). Our CEO and Co-founder, Chye Kit, together with a few key veterans speakers in the regulatory industry were invited to discuss the MAS Consultation Paper on a proposed Omnibus Act for the Financial Services sector.
Throughout the 90-minutes virtual webinar, the panelists covered several aspects of the proposed Omnibus Act. Particularly, the panelists discussed the widened scope on the issuance of prohibition orders (POs), where they shared their thoughts on the possible impacts of widening the scope of persons who can receive prohibition orders (POs) and the widening of the impact of POs.
Other highlights of the panel discussion include the discussion on the introduction of the new regulatory regime for virtual asset service providers (VASPs) created in Singapore for Anti-Money Laundering / Countering of Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) purposes, and the power to impose requirements on technology risk management (TRM). Lastly, the session ended off with overwhelming comments and feedback from the audiences. Further feedback regarding the MAS Consultation Paper on the proposed Omnibus Act for the Financial Services sector can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and the Sub-Committee members will be collating and submitting these feedback to the MAS.
The virtual webinar also marked the formation of the Regulatory and Compliance Committee of the BAS, and we are excited to announce that Cynopsis Solutions joins as a member of BAS and Chye Kit is also now part of the Founding Members of the BAS Regulatory and Compliance Sub-Committee.
We would like to thank BAS for organising the virtual event as well as the fellow key panelists in sharing their thoughts and views about the new proposals and we look forward to participating in similar events in the future.
