The CPS Scheme is administered by Enterprise Singapore as the Safety Authority since 1991 under the Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements) Regulations. One of the roles of the Safety Authority under the Regulations is to ensure compliance by industry on the registration of thirty-three (33) categories of Controlled Goods.
Registration of Controlled Goods under the Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements) Regulations is based on Certificates of Conformity (CoC) issued by designated third party Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs), or Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) declared by Registered Suppliers. Suppliers of Controlled Goods for consumers in Singapore must first be registered with the Safety Authority as Registered Suppliers. Registered Suppliers are required to register each model of Controlled Goods with the Safety Authority. Registrations of Controlled Goods must be supported with CoC issued by designated CABs located in Singapore or in Singapore’s MRA partners, i.e. CABs (Certification/Testing), or SDoC declared by Registered Suppliers.
Once the model has been registered with the Safety Authority, the Controlled Goods can then be advertised for supply and/or supplied in Singapore.
Enterprise Singapore categorises the Controlled Goods into three risk levels - Low, Medium, or High. The table below shows the conformity assessment approach adopted for each of the three risk levels.
The SAFETY Mark comprises of a safety logo enclosed in a square on the left and the word “SAFETY MARK” enclosed in a rectangle on the right. Below the logo is a unique certification number traceable to the registrant. The color used is Pantone 032C.
