Controlled & Prohibited Goods for Transhipment

Controlled goods require proper authorisation (advance notification, licence or certificate approval) from Competent Authorities (CAs) before they may be transhipped through Singapore. You may view the list of controlled goods here.

Alternatively, you may search to check if your goods are controlled using the description of the goods, Harmonized System (HS) or CA product code. If the item is subject to control the name of the CA will be indicated next to its HS code. You may refer to the Competent Authority (CAs) Help Desk and check directly with the respective CAs on their licensing requirements.
