New Safety Mark
Singapore has amended its consumer protection regulations (CPSR): Beginning 2019-04-02, all new controlled goods must comply and bear the new safety mark, whereas older devices from registered suppliers have a grace period of 3 years until 2022-04-02.
The new safety mark:
Singapore Introduces New Online System
Singapore's IMDA introduced a new online portal called CorpPass to centralize online interactions with government agencies. About 50 existing agency portals like TLS (Telecoms Licensing System) are being replaced by CorpPass. In case of TLS, the procedure for type approval itself remains untouched, but please note the change if you have a local representation in Singapore.
LTE WiMax re-allocation
The Singapore Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) is working on the re-allocation of spectrum bands available for 4G services:
2.3 GHz and 2.5/2.6 GHz bands will expire in 2015.
900 MHz and 1800 MHz band assignments will expire in 2017.
Despite the fact that 4G services are currently running in the existing bands and therefore a conflict is arising at the development stage, IDA decided not to re-allocate 900 MHz bands for the time being.
For the use of LTE or WiMax the below bands are under discussion:
- 14 lots of paired spectrum (2x5 MHz per lot) in the 1800 MHz band;
- 8 lots of paired spectrum (2x5 MHz per lot) in the 2.5 GHz band;
- 6 lots of spectrum (10MHz per lot) in the 2.3 GHz and 2.5 GHz.
Spectrum caps are suggested, of up to 2x45 MHz of spectrum in full for 1800 MHz and 2.5 GHz band paired categories. The consultation also suggest 2x20 MHz in the 2.5 GHz band, for which only new candidates may place a bid.
In 2021, the 2.1 GHz spectrum for 3G mobile will expire.
700/800 MHz spectrum is not expected to be longer available.

Safety Information for Singapore
The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
The Type G electrical plug has three rectangular blades in a triangular pattern and has an incorporated fuse (usually a 3 amps fuse for smaller appliances such as a computer and a 13 amps one for heavy duty appliances such as heaters). British sockets have shutters on the live and neutral contacts so that foreign objects can’t be introduced into them.
The Type M plug has three round pins in a triangular pattern and looks similar to the Indian Type D plug, but its pins are much larger. Type M plugs are sometimes used for bigger appliances in countries that make use of Type D plugs, as well as in Israel (Type H). Therefore, sockets in these countries sometimes work with Type M plugs.
