End of Adjustment Period for Advanced
Export Declaration

From 1 October 2014, all export declarations must be submitted before export.

The transition period ends on 30 September 2014. Subsequently, companies submitting late declarations are liable to penalties.

With the implementation of the Advanced Export Declaration (AED) requirement in April 2013, companies have had an 18-month transition period to fine-tune their processes.

Under the AED, all permit declarations must be submitted before the goods are exported, including non-controlled and non-dutiable goods exported by sea and air. Such advance information is necessary to strengthen supply chain security and enhance Singapore's position as a trusted trade hub.

For details on AED, visit the Singapore Customs website.
