Product Listing Scheme - PLS

Independent certification of products for added assurance

With the increasing scrutiny for safety and quality in products, consumers, industry buyers and regulators today choose independently certified products for added assurance. Manufacturers and traders can provide such assurance by ensuring their products are certified by a reputable certification body.

As an internationally recognised testing and certification body, TÜV SÜD can help manufacturers and traders gain access to both local and global markets, by ensuring that products meet international standards and conformity requirements.

This Product Listing Scheme entails safety and performance testing of products in accordance to the national and international standards. TÜV SÜD will issue the Certificate of Conformity and PSB Tick Mark once products tested meet the required standards.

The Product Listing Scheme supports the industry in fulfilling regulatory requirements of regulators like the Singapore Civil Defence Force, Ministry of Manpower, Land Transport Authority, Dubai Civil Defence Department for a range of fire safety products and materials, personnel protective devices, etc.

All suppliers and manufacturers capable of manufacturing products which conform to relevant standards and additional regulatory requirements where applicable, may apply for the PLS.

All PLS listed products can be found in the Certificate Explorer. To find out the certification status of a known COC number not found in the PLS directory, please send us your enquiry. The download links for our forms and label specifications are as below.
