Import Certificate and Delivery Verification
The Import Certificate and Delivery Verification (ICDV) complement the export control regime of the foreign exporting country/region. Import Certificate serves as an assurance that the Singapore authority has no objection to the proposed import of the specific goods to Singapore for the stated end-use and to the stated end-user. Delivery Verification serves as an assurance that the goods have imported into Singapore.
It assures the exporting country that sensitive goods are delivered to approved end-users in Singapore, or that the goods are allowed to be re-exported through Singapore to approved end-users. The ICDV is also known as the International Import Certificate.
The ICDV is a 3-stage process:
Apply for an Import Certificate if:
- The goods imported into Singapore are controlled by the exporting country, or
- The exporting country requests for an Import Certificate
Apply for an import permit via TradeNet before importing the goods
Apply for a Delivery Verification after importing the goods, if the exporting country requests for such verification
