Corporate Governance of SSA
The Singapore Soka Association (SSA) has been established as a religious organization practising Nichiren Buddhism in Singapore since 1967. On January 6, 1972, SSA was officially registered under the Societies Act (Chapter 311) of the Statutes of Singapore under the Registry of Societies (ROS).
In 1985, the Charities Act was introduced which legislated that organisations established for purposes which are exclusively charitable according to the Singapore Law, be registered as charities and accordingly governed under the Act’s requirements. By definition, all religious organisations are considered charitable organisations. With this legislation, SSA was subsequently registered as a Charity under the Charities Act on October 10, 1985.
