Accreditation of Professionals

In Singapore, at present there are no statutory regulations governing the practice and protecting the titles of Dietitians and Nutritionists. The Singapore Nutrition and Dietetics Association (SNDA) implemented an Accreditation Scheme in 2005 for Dietitians and Nutritionists who are members of the association with aim to maintain high level of professional practice.

Accredited Dietitian of Singapore (ADS) and Accredited Nutritionist of Singapore (ANS) are recognised professionals who have credible qualifications and expertise to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice to the healthy population. ADS have additional knowledge and skills in clinical nutrition and are trained to work with various diseased populations in variety of settings.


The Benefits of Accreditation include:
  • Protect the professional title, status and practice of Dietitians and Nutritionists

  • Establish the probity (integrity, trustworthiness) and credibility of the profession in the eyes of the public

  • Maintain and update list of recognised professional qualifications

  • Encourage continual professional development to maintain competence
