Council for Private Education (CPE)
The Council for Private Education (CPE) is a statutory board established under the Private Education Act 2009 to regulate the private education industry in Singapore. Besides being the regulator of Private Education Institutions (PEIs) in Singapore, the CPE also facilitates development efforts to improve the standards in the industry.

Enhanced Registration Framework
As part of regulatory efforts stipulated by the Private Education Act 2009, it is mandatory for all PEIs to be registered with the CPE under the Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF). The Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF), as set out under the Private Education Act and the Private Education Regulations, spells out the mandatory registration requirements and legislative obligations which all PEIs, operating in and from Singapore, must meet. It is administered by the CPE, which is the sectoral regulator overseeing the private education sector, as established under the Private Education Act. The ERF aims to enhance the overall quality of PEIs in Singapore and ensure that they are of a certain acceptable standard in order to protect the interests of students.
