The EduTrust Certification Scheme (EduTrust) is a quality assurance scheme administered by CPE for PEIs in Singapore. It aims to distinguish private schools that are able to consistently maintain a high standard of quality in the overall provision of education services and make continual improvements that lead to positive student outcomes.
NIM is Edutrust certified.
The Committee for Private Education (CPE) was appointed by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) Board in October 2016 to carry out its functions and powers relating to private education under the Private Education Act. The CPE is supported by a team of dedicated staff from SSG to regulate the sector, provide student services, consumer education and facilitate capability development efforts to uplift standards in the local private education industry.
Under the Singapore Private Education Act, the Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF) spells out the mandatory registration requirements and legislative obligation of the private education institution operating in Singapore. NIM is registered under the ERF.

The Singapore government announced in February 2022 that the goods and services tax (GST) will be increased from the current 7% to 9% over the next two years:
• 8% GST from 1 January 2023
• 9% GST from 1 January 2024
This means that in year 2023, invoices issued and fees collected by NIM will be subjected to the prevailing GST of 8% instead of the current 7%, and in year 2024, invoices issued and fees collected by NIM will be subject to the then prevailing GST rate of 9%.
