No

"Dependants of EP and S Pass holders who are in Singapore by 1 September 2012 will be allowed to stay in Singapore if these work pass holders have valid passes with their existing employers. For more information"

I took that to mean "... will be allowed to stay in Singapore ..." until the renewal of EP and DP(s) or new EP / DP application, at which time the new criteria might apply?

But it wouldn't be the first time in my life I've been wrong about something...

EP and S Pass holder who renew are fine as don't have to meet new criteria. However is a EP/S Pass holder who has been here prior to Sept 2012 moves to anew company they will have to meet the new criteria for DP. I can't see many EP/S Pass holder who earn <4k with family here on DPs moving companies!

"The changes will only apply to all dependants of EP and S Pass holders who arrive
in Singapore from 1 Sep 2012. To reduce disruption to families already here or
who have already made plans to arrive soon, dependants of EP and S Pass
holders who are already in Singapore or will be arriving before 1 Sep 2012 will be
allowed to stay as long as the main pass holders have valid passes. This is on the
condition that MOM received the applications for the stay of the dependants before
1 Sep 2012.
Such dependants can also remain in Singapore when the EP or S Pass holder has
his/ her work pass renewed, for all renewals taking place on or after 1 Sep 2012, so
long as the pass holder remains with the same employer."
