Foreword

Household appliances have become a big part of our lives. We switch on the television

when we get home, grab a snack from the refrigerator, and enjoy piping hot coffee from

the coffee maker; all these, while the washing machine does our laundry.

Household appliances have also grown more sophisticated. Our records showed that

about 25% of accidents involving common electrical, electronic and gas appliances were

due to the misuse or mishandling of such products.

As the Safety Authority, SPRING Singapore manages the Consumer Protection (Safety

Requirements) Registration Scheme or CPS Scheme.

We regulate 45 categories of common household electrical, electronic and gas products,

such as television, electric fan, and gas cooker. We also ensure that these products

meet the relevant safety standards before they can be registered, advertised and sold

in Singapore.

Following the launch of the Scheme, the number of accidents involving such products has

gone down significantly over the years (as shown in the graph below).

Kata Pengantar

Kehidupan kita dipenuhi dengan pelbagai peralatan rumah. Kita menghidupkan televisyen

apabila pulang ke rumah, mengeluarkan makanan dari peti sejuk, dan minum kopi panas

dari alat pembuat kopi; sementara itu, mesin basuh mencuci pakaian kita.

Peralatan rumah juga semakin canggih. Rekod kami menunjukkan kira-kira 25%

kemalangan yang melibatkan peralatan elektrik, elektronik dan gas yang biasa adalah

disebabkan salah guna atau salah pengendalian produk.

Sebagai Pihak Berkuasa Keselamatan, SPRING Singapore menguruskan Skim Pendaftaran

Perlindungan Pengguna (Peraturan Keselamatan) atau Skim CPS.

Kami mengawal selia 45 kategori produk elektrik, elektronik dan gas kegunaan rumah

seperti televisyen, kipas elektrik, dan dapur gas. Kami juga memastikan produk tersebut

mematuhi piawai keselamatan yang berkenaan, sebelum dapat didaftarkan, diiklankan

dan dijual di Singapura.

Setelah Skim ini dilancarkan, bilangan kemalangan yang melibatkan produk tersebut

banyak merosot tahun demi tahun (lihat graf di bawah).

The SAFETY Mark

The SAFETY Mark is part of the Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements)

Registration Scheme or CPS Scheme which was initiated in 1991 to protect

consumers from unsafe household electrical, electronic and gas products.

Managed by SPRING Singapore, the scheme covers 45 categories of

commonly used household products (known as Controlled Goods), such as

microwave ovens, refrigerators, air-conditioners.

Suppliers must show that their products meet the relevant product safety

standards before they can be registered with SPRING Singapore and affixed

with the SAFETY Mark.

The SAFETY mark comprises a safety logo enclosed in a square and a

rectangle with the word ‘SAFETY Mark’. Below this logo symbol is a unique

8-digit certification number traceable to the registered Controlled Goods.

The SAFETY Mark can be found on either the product and/or packaging.

So safeguard your family and home; look for the SAFETY Mark when you buy

these household appliances.

If you buy goods that are not registered, you run the risk of...

Tanda KESELAMATAN

Tanda KESELAMATAN adalah satu unsur Skim Pendaftaran Perlindungan

Pengguna (Peraturan Keselamatan) atau Skim CPS yang dimulakan pada

tahun 1991 untuk melindungi pengguna daripada produk elektrik, elektronik,

dan gas kegunaan rumah yang tidak selamat. Skim yang diuruskan oleh SPRING

Singapore ini meliputi 45 kategori produk biasa kegunaan rumah (disebut Barangan

Terkawal) seperti ketuhar gelombang mikro, peti sejuk, dan alat hawa dingin.

Pembekal mesti menunjukkan produk mereka mematuhi piawai keselamatan

produk yang berkenaan, sebelum produk itu dapat didaftarkan dengan

SPRING Singapore dan diberikan Tanda KESELAMATAN.

Tanda KESELAMATAN terdiri daripada sebuah logo keselamatan dalam

bingkai segi empat tepat, di samping sebuah segi empat panjang dengan

perkataan ‘SAFETY Mark’ (Tanda KESELAMATAN). Di bawah lambang logo

ini tertera nombor persijilan 8-angka yang dapat dikesan pada Barangan

Terkawal berkenaan.

Tanda KESELAMATAN dapat dilihat pada produk dan/atau pada

bungkusannya. Oleh itu, lindungilah keluarga anda dan rumah anda; carilah
