The Singapore S-Mark is a voluntary test mark that confirms the safety of products that are imported to or manufactured in Singapore. Electronics manufacturers and distributors use the mark to gain a competitive lead, by proving their products are tested and certified for sale in Singapore and that they comply with the test mark's requirements. The Singapore S-Mark takes conditions at the manufacturer's facilities and plants into account and tests products on the basis of a detailed test plan.
TÜV Rheinland is recognized as a certification body by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) and can provide the testing and certification needed for your product. As the Singapore S-Mark is frequently monitored for the applicable conditions of its validity, TÜV Rheinland also offers follow-up testing to ensure that owners of the certificate are not only informed of changes, but that their certificate stays valid.
Singapore’s Consumer Protection Registration Scheme (CPS) has identified a list of 45 “controlled goods” which cover electrical household goods (e.g. refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, washing machine), electrical and gas cooking appliances and accessories (e.g. kettle, microwave oven, rice cooker), audio video equipment (e.g. television).
To be able to sell these controlled goods in Singapore, you need to obtain a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for your product through a Conformity Assessment Body (CAB). The Singapore CoC shows that these products meet the specified safety standards, before they are given the Singapore SAFETY Mark and can be sold in Singapore.
TÜV Rheinland is accredited by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) and designated by SPRING Singapore (which manages the CPS scheme) to provide testing and certification services for your products. The Singapore safety mark is mandatory for all electronics manufacturers who import products to Singapore, which fall under the CPS scheme.
