Construction Registration of Tradesmen, or CoreTrade, is a registration scheme, administered by the Building and Construction Authority, for skilled and experienced construction personnel in the various key construction trades.

In the Building Control (Amendment) Act 2007, one of the key amendments that were introduced was the licensing of builders. As a condition to be met for the Builders’ Licence, licensed Class 1 General Builders are required to deploy a minimum number of CoreTrade personnel in their projects of value S$20million and more.

CoreTrade personnel may qualify as “Higher Skilled” under Ministry of Manpower (MOM)’s Foreign Worker Levy Scheme.


This scheme was introduced to allow the construction industry to build up its core group of competent and experienced workers in key construction trades who will serve to anchor and lead the construction workforce, and raise its quality and productivity levels. CoreTrade provides a platform to retain the better and more experienced workers by providing a clear career progression path and giving them due recognition. It will allow one to move from a basic skilled worker, to a registered CoreTrade tradesman specializing in specific trades, progress to become a registered CoreTrade trade foreman and eventually a CoreTrade Supervisor. The development of a core group of construction personnel will support the industry’s role in shaping our built environment, supporting Singapore’s economic growth and enhancing the quality of life of our people.
