The Singapore Customs Academy was launched on 9 February 2012 at the International Customs Day by Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister Of State For Finance And Transport.
The Singapore Customs Academy is dedicated to meet the customs-related training needs of logistic businesses and traders, as well as customs officers and foreign counterparts. Courses covered include customs procedures, import and export documentation requirements and tariff regimes. The training is done in modular format and also via an online portal which will be especially beneficial for SMEs who may not have the flexibility to send their staff for training.
Singapore Customs believes that the majority of traders here want to comply with customs requirements. Through better compliance capacity, the more Singapore Customs can facilitate their business operations, as well as their business growth.
