Enterprise Singapore recently announced via Circular CPSO-310323-08 an update on the safety standard for registration requirements of the 13A fused switched connection units, which are classified as Controlled Goods (CGs) under the Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements) Regulations (CPSR). Effective Dec 31, 2024, for new or renewal registrations, Enterprise Singapore will only accept the latest standard SS 145-4: 2022 for 13A fused switched connection units. The current safety standard of SS 403:1997 will no longer be valid as of the effective date above.

A domestic electric wall switch is defined as an electrical manually-operated general purpose switch for alternating currents only, with a rated voltage not exceeding 440 V and a rated current not exceeding 63 A, intended for household fixed-electrical installations.
