Asian Tigers Singapore: Secure Trade Partnership (STP) Plus Certification
K.C. DAT (S) PTE LTD (Trading as Asian Tigers Singapore) has been awarded the “Secure Trade Partnership (STP) Plus Certification” again.
Since 1963, Asian Tigers Singapore has been a leader in the move management industry. To that end, we took the lead to become the first move management specialist in 2016 to be certified as an STP supplier and passed with flying colours which elevated us to STP-Plus.
The STP is a voluntary certification program administered by Singapore Customs to help companies adopt robust security measures to enhance the security of the global supply chain. It is consistent with the World Customs Organisation (WCO) SAFE Framework of Standards to secure and facilitate global trade.
Highest Level of Security – STP-Plus certification is only awarded to companies who have attained the “Premium” band under the TradeFIRST assessment, which comprises five levels of facilitation and audited for compliance directly by Singapore Customs officers.
This could be likened to the USA C-TPAT Tier status of II and III. Tier III being the highest security status, and accorded to C-TPAT Partners who exceed program requirements and have implemented supply chain security best practices based on the risk assessments they conducted.
