IS IT AGAINST THE LAW TO OF­FER AD­VICE ON DIET OR NUTRI­TION WITH­OUT A LI­CENCE?

– Jeremy

Ac­cord­ing to the Sin­ga­pore Nutri­tion and Di­etet­ics As­so­ci­a­tion, there are no reg­is­tra­tion or li­cens­ing re­quire­ments for one to of­fer ad­vice on diet or nutri­tion in Sin­ga­pore, says Sa­muel Seow, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Sa­muel Seow Law Cor­po­ra­tion. But giv­ing ad­vice neg­li­gently may ex­pose you to le­gal li­a­bil­ity. If your neg­li­gent mis­state­ment causes one to suf­fer per­sonal in­jury, you may be said to have breached your duty of care to­wards him or her.
