[Notice] CONSUMER PROTECTION (SAFETY REQUIREMENTS) REGULATIONS (CPSR)

(Posted on behalf of the Consumer Product Safety Office)

Dear Sellers,


The Consumer Product Safety Office 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 the Consumer Product Safety Office. As part of the registration process these products must be tested to the international and/or 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 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.

Penalties for supply of unregistered Controlled Good


Under the CPSR, it is an offence to trade, advertise or supply Controlled Goods in Singapore unless it has been successfully registered with the CPSO and carries the SAFETY Mark. Suppliers who fail to comply can, upon conviction, be fined up to SG$10,000, imprisoned up to a year, or both.
