I come to know via Singapore Customs news letter on Dec 29, 2011, Singapore will update its export control list on 1st Jan 2012 in order to reflect latest amendment of international regimes such as NSG, AG, MTCR and WA. The news source is as follows.
I quickly looked through the list and find the update is only limited to Category 1C351, 2A001, Category 3, Category 4, Category 5 - part I, and small number of deletion in Category 6, 7, and 8.
It is basically deletion and relaxation of items with some major changes in recent a few years.
The summary can be found in http://www.customs.gov.sg/NR/rdonlyres/F855FE58-01E3-4D86-B4CD-761306C37630/28694/StrategicGoodsControlAmendmentOrder2011.pdf
Singapore's policy in amendment of export control list is basically to follow EU dual-use items list.
As EU list is slow to reflect the update of international regimes, the latest EU list is still Regulation 428/2009.
While US and Japan have already reflected the Wassenaar list of December 2010 (e.g. US EAR on May 2011 and Japan list on July 2011), there has been discrepancy of list (items addition/deletion, and difference of technical parameter etc) between Singapore list between other nation's list. I hope Singapore's decision is welcomed for global traders. As soon as EU revise its list, Singapore will also update entirely its export control list upon release of the revised EU’s control list.
The inconvenient point for global traders are the existing export control list, or "Strategic Goods (Control) Order 2010" is not amended on Singapore Customs web site, therefore traders need to refer to both new list - the "Strategic Goods (Control) (Amendment) Order 2011", and the existing list "Strategic Goods (Control) Order 2010" when referring to the export control list. In other words, for certain period until whole list is revised, traders need to carefully refer two lists.
