For better professional self-regulation of aesthetic practices, the Academy of Medicine, Singapore (AMS), College of Family Physicians, Singapore (CFPS) and the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) shall jointly implement a framework for aesthetic practitioners. 

The AMS and the CFPS, in unison, have developed the Guidelines on Aesthetic Practices for Doctors ('guidelines'). These guidelines were forwarded to the SMC's Aesthetic Practice Oversight Committee (APOC) which recommended that the SMC adopt the guidelines as professional standards of aesthetic practice. After reviewing both the guidelines and APOC's recommendations, the SMC has decided to adopt these guidelines as professional standards of aesthetic practice. The guidelines will take effect from 1 November 2008.
