Secure Trade Partnership (STP)

Launched on 25 May 2007, the Secure Trade Partnership (STP) is a voluntary certification programme administered by Singapore Customs that encourages companies to adopt robust security measures in their trading operations, thereby contributing to the improvement in the security of the global supply chain. 

Through the STP programme, Singapore Customs seeks to:

  • create awareness of the importance of adopting a total supply chain approach to cargo security;
  • encourage companies to play their part in securing their own processes within supply chains;
  • enhance the security of global supply chain and prevent disruptions to the smooth flow of goods; and
  • profile Singapore as a secure trading hub.

The STP programme provides companies with a framework to guide the development, implementation, monitoring and review of their supply chain security measures and practices.  

By participating in the STP programme, companies will be demonstrating their commitment to adopting and implementing appropriate security measures and a willingness to assume responsibility for keeping their supply chains secure.

The STP programme is open to all supply chain stakeholders (importers, exporters, warehouse operators, transporters, and terminal operators, etc).

The STP programme is consistent with the World Customs Organisation (WCO) SAFE Framework of Standards to secure and facilitate global trade, adopted in June 2005.
