Singapore issues certification requirements for multifunctional socket converter



Singapore has issued the certification requirements for multi-functional socket converters. From February 11, 2024, all multi-functional socket converters of shape and design must display valid safety signs before they can be sold in Singapore.

3. As shown in the figure below, the newer design of the multi-function socket converter also belongs to the SS145-3 range.



4. From February 11, 2024, all multi-functional socket converters of shape and design must display valid safety signs before they can be sold in Singapore.


Singapore Product Regulations

Enterprise Singapore is a security agency designated by the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Singapore, which is mainly responsible for the management of the CPS Registration Scheme (Singapore Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements). CPS plan is a safety and security plan launched by the Singapore government in 1991 to protect the rights and interests of consumers. The controlled goods are divided into three risk levels: low, medium and high; It must comply with the corresponding safety standards (SS standard or IEC marking). The supplier must carry out product certification and apply for a certificate of conformity (CoC) at the designated conformity assessment bodies (CABs), and the product can only be circulated in the Singapore market with safety marks affixed.

Since January 1, 2008, the National Environment Agency of Singapore (NEA) has also begun to enforce the energy consumption labeling plan for departmental electronic and electrical products. Air conditioners, refrigerators and other products need to meet the energy efficiency requirements before they can be sold on the basis of completing the COC certificate of safety regulations.

In addition to the CPS and MEPS certification schemes for electronic and electrical products, wireless communication products also need to be subject to the control of the Singapore Information and Communication Development Authority, and the corresponding IMDA registration certificates need to be completed.
