Some importing countries may require a certificate to show that a Chinese Proprietary Medicine (CPM) is approved for sale and distribution in Singapore.
To assist in such scenarios, companies may apply for a Certificate for Exporter of CPM, also known as a Free Sale Certificate.
Each certificate is specific to one product and allow the inclusion of up to five importing countries.
The certificate will expire 24 months from the date of issuance. It cannot be renewed or reissued, and upon expiry, a new application must be submitted, if required.
You will need to submit the following documents:
- Latest local sales invoice, if applicable.
- Master formula and manufacturing procedure of product (applicable for local manufacturers).
- Other supporting documents, if applicable.
