The Consumer Protection (Consumer Goods Safety Requirements) Regulations (CGSR), which was previously administered by SPRING Singapore, will now be administered by Enterprise Singapore.
Suppliers are reminded that they have to comply with the safety requirements for power banks as set out in the CGSR and its Information Booklet. This has been communicated via Circular 2015-01.
To provide consumers with greater confidence when buying your products and to build trust in your company, suppliers are strongly encouraged to publish the safety standards met by the power banks (i.e. through product testing) on the product itself and/or its packaging.
Suppliers are reminded that they are not permitted to use or make reference to the name or logo of Enterprise Singapore in any marketing material, on the product itself and/or its packaging of the power bank without the prior written permission of Enterprise Singapore. Enterprise Singapore will monitor for such infringements and will not hesitate to take stern action against misuse.
The table below illustrates the guideline for displaying your marketing message without infringing on the name or logo of Enterprise Singapore:
Include information on the safety standard
E.g. This product complies with EN 71 and ISO 8124.
Do not include Enterprise Singapore name or logo.
E.g. This product complies with Enterprise Singapore's standards.
