Singapore Import Rules and "Red Flag" Indicators

Singapore requires that importers of many items listed on the Singapore list of controlled goods obtain permits prior to import or export of these items. Permits are issued by the Singapore Customs Department. Singapore's export control list generally corresponds to multilaterally controlled items on the Commerce Control List (CCL).

BIS strongly encourages U.S. exporters to know whether foreign customers are obligated to obtain an import permit or other authorizations prior to exporting controlled items. As a best practice, prior to shipment, BIS recommends U.S. exporters provide foreign customers with the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) of items to be exported and request a copy of any required foreign authorizations. Failure of a foreign customer to honor a request to provide a copy of any required foreign import or export authorizations would present a "red flag" that indicates an export may be destined for an inappropriate end use, end user or destination. For "red flag" guidance, see Supplement No. 3 to Part 732 of the EAR. For additional information, please refer to the Singapore Customs website at http://www.customs.gov.sg.
