CORENET e-Submission System

What is CORENET 2.0?

CORENET 2.0 is a major technology refresh of the current CORENET e-Submission System ("CORENET") and seeks to improve the current user experience. It is part of a longer-term plan to transform the regulatory approval process and will serve the industry prior to the implementation of CORENET X.

What is the difference between CORENET 2.0 and CORENET X?

CORENET 2.0 and CORENET X are different systems. CORENET 2.0 is mainly a tech refresh of the current CORENET. CORENET 2.0 will eventually be replaced by CORENET X, which is slated for implementation by the end of 2023.

CORENET X aims to change the current practice of QPs dealing separately with multiple regulatory agencies, and producing different versions of building plans thereafter. It will allow the project team, which includes the QPs, to collaborate and review their designs in the model together, detect possible major conflicts before construction, and produce a coordinated BIM model for submission and regulatory approval.

What are the key changes in CORENET 2.0?

Broadly, CORENET 2.0 involves the following key changes:

  • Login - CORENET 2.0 will onboard Singpass and replace the current login mechanism. Every individual will login CORENET 2.0 using their own credential. Users accessing CORENET 2.0 and representing their companies should login as a business user, while users accessing in their individual capacity can login as an individual.
  • Preparation for submissions - To facilitate submissions by Qualified Persons (QP), CORENET 2.0 will allow QPs to add their QP assistants into CORENET 2.0, allowing them access to the projects as well as perform administrative tasks and prepare submission for the QP.
  • New user interface and New form viewer for CORENET 2.0 Portal and ESPro will be revamped with a refreshed look and feel. The new form viewer is backward compatible to existing XFD forms and would no longer require a licence key

Will CORENET 2.0 cover other systems, such as TOP Portal?

No,TOP Portal will operate alongside with CORENET 2.0, as per today's arrangement. However, there is plan to consolidate these standalone systems pertaining to regulatory approval and it will be done under CORENET X.
