MAS launched Sandbox Express to provide a faster option to conduct experiments within a pre-determined and standardised construct. Under this framework, MAS hopes to enable certain MAS-regulated activities that will bring innovative financial services or products into the market through a shortened approval process. Eligible applicants are thus allowed to commence market testing within 21 days of an application and may remain in Sandbox Express for a maximum period of 9 months.
