Updates to the Strategic Goods Control List

Singapore Customs would like to inform you that the new Strategic Goods (Control) Order 2019 (“SGCO 2019”) has been gazetted on 1 August 2019, and will come into effect from 1 October 2019. You may access the SGCO 2019 via our website at www.customs.gov.sg > Business > Strategic Goods Control > Strategic Goods Control List.


2 The SGCO 2019 brings Singapore’s strategic goods control list up to date with the 2018 Wassenaar Arrangement’s Munitions List, and the 2018 European Union’s List of Dual-Use Items (“EUDL”). The EUDL contains dual-use items controlled by the four multilateral export control regimes (the Australia Group, the Missile Technology Control Regime, the Nuclear Suppliers Group and the Wassenaar Arrangement).
