[Notice] CONSUMER PROTECTION (SAFETY REQUIREMENTS) REGULATIONS (CPSR)
(Posted on behalf of Enterprise Singapore)

Dear Sellers,

Enterprise Singapore is the Safety Authority that administers the Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements) Regulations (CPSR). The CPSR regulations requires 33 categories of household products, also known as Controlled Goods, to be registered with Enterprise Singapore. As part of the registration process these products must be tested to the international and local safety standards specified by the Safety Authority, and affixed with the SAFETY Mark.


About the SAFETY Mark

The SAFETY Mark helps consumers and suppliers identify registered Controlled Goods

How this affects you as an online seller

Online retailers selling to the Singapore market are subject to the CPSR regulations and should ensure that any Controlled Goods they are selling carries the SAFETY Mark. Online retailers should also prominently display the SAFETY Mark for a Controlled Good when listing it for sale to help consumers determine if the Controlled Good complies with the safety requirements.
